In todays post I’m going to show you two easy ways to navigate to a directory using Command Prompt. Let’s not waste any time.
The drag and drop method
Open a Command Prompt window and type ‘cd ‘, then open an explorer window and navigate to the required directory.
In this example I’m just navigating to an Adobe Photoshop folder.
Now, simply drag and drop the folder you’d like to navigate to, into CMD.
Now press ‘Enter‘ and I kid you not that’s it, you’re now in that directory. This method can also just be used to paste a file path without having to type it out or copy and paste it in.
The cmd method
This method is even easier for navigating to a directory using CMD. Open a file explorer window and navigate to where you’d like your directory to be, I will use the same Photoshop Folder.
Now type in ‘cmd‘ in the box highlighted and press ‘Enter‘.
And there you have it, a CMD window will open with that folder as the directory… Even easier!
Drag and drop the folder into the CMD window.
Type in ‘cmd‘ in the file path box when in the current directory you’d like to start CMD in.
