how to change directory using Windows command line

cd has a parameter /d, which will change drive and path with one command:

cd /d d:\temp

( see cd /?)

Another alternative is pushd, which will automatically switch drives as needed. It also allows you to return to the previous directory via popd:

C:\Temp>pushd D:\some\folder

The "cd" command changes the directory, but not what drive you are working with. So when you go "cd d:\temp", you are changing the D drive's directory to temp, but staying in the C drive.

Execute these two commands:

cd temp

That will get you the results you want.

Just type your desired drive initial in the command line and press enter

Like if you want to go L:\\ drive, Just type L: or l:
