I’m trying to compile some java (learning java currently), and to do so I need to change command-prompt’s directory (using javac).
C:...Admin> cd D:DocsJava C:...Admin> cd C:...Admin
It doesn’t change the directory. I try again using quotes:
C:...Admin> cd "D:DocsJava" C:...Admin>
Again it doesn’t change the directory. What am I doing wrong?
As @nasreddine answered or you can use
cd /d d:DocsJava
For more help on the
cd command use:
C:Documents and Settingskenny>help cd
Displays the name of or changes the current directory.
CHDIR [/D] [drive:][path]
CD [/D] [drive:][path]
.. 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.
Use the /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:
cd winntprofilesusernameprogramsstart menu
is the same as:
cd “winntprofilesusernameprogramsstart menu”
which is what you would have to type if extensions were disabled.
