Changing Folders Faster

Changing Folders Faster

You probably know by now that you use the CD (change directory) command to change to a different folder on the current drive. However, Command Prompt has a few short forms you can use to save time.

You might know that both Command Prompt and Windows Vista use the dot symbol (.) to represent the current folder, and the double-dot symbol (..) to represent its parent folder. You can combine the CD command and the dot notation to jump immediately to a folder’s parent folder, or even higher.
