Help of the DOS Command
Displays the name of or changes the current directory.:
CHDIR [/D] [drive:][path] CHDIR [..] CD [/D] [drive:][path] CD [..]
.. Specifies that you want to change to the parent directory.
Type CD drive: to display the current directory in the specified drive. Type CD without parameters to display the current drive and directory.
/D switch to change current drive in addition to changing current directory for a drive.
If Command Extensions are enabled
CHDIR changes as follows:
The current directory string is converted to use the same case as the on disk names. So
CD C:\TEMP would actually set the current directory to
C:\Temp if that is the case on disk.
CHDIR command does not treat spaces as delimiters, so it is possible to
CD into a subdirectory name that contains a space without surrounding the name with quotes. For example:
CHDIR \winnt\profiles\username\programs\start menu
is the same as:
cd "\winnt\profiles\username\programs\start menu"
which is what you would have to type if extensions were disabled.
