If you want to change the drive in windows command prompt, you just type the drive name followed by colon and press Enter key. It will land you to the desired drive as shown below -:



As shown above, User lands to D: by typing 'D:' in command prompt.

If you want to change the drive and dictionary simultaneously, we need to use “/d” along with the “cd” command and provide the subfolder path separated by backslash.For instance,if you wish to move to “C:/Users” from “D:” drive , then we need to type-

cd \d C:/Users

And press Enter.

Nidhi Gupta :- Yes, we do need to type '/d' after cd to go directly into users folder otherwise it will not work and stay at the same location.

Ravinder Singh :- Do we need to write cd /d c:\users or simply cd c:\users if we want to go directly into users folder inside c drive ?
