Solved Mkdir in a diffrent directory

March 27, 2015 at 20:12:35
Specs: Windows 8
I can't seem to make the mkdir command make a folder in a different directory I keep trying the cd command and it does not seem to want to work... I am launching the program that is trying to use mkdir off a usb, is that the problem? I have tried google and YouTube and whatnot and nothing is working! So I decided I better pay ol computing.net a visit again.

"cd /d: C:\Users\Games\Desktop"

so close

"cd /d C:\Users\Games\Desktop"

no colon after /d

I use MD because I'm not much of a typist. But either should do.

=========================
Y:\>md x

Y:\>dir x
Volume in drive Y is 500G SATA
Volume Serial Number is B443-BA90

Directory of Y:\x

2015-03-28 16:00 <DIR> .
2015-03-28 16:00 <DIR> ..
0 File(s) 0 bytes
2 Dir(s) 86,591,516,672 bytes free
=============================
If you want to change directory AND DRIVE you need cd /d:

Beyound that, windows is notorious for letting drive letters, especially on removables, go squishing around.

Oops I didn't write this as a reply so this message is going to appear twice when I do write it as a reply...

When you say "If you want to change directory AND DRIVE you need cd /d:" do you mean something like "cd /C:\Users\*****\Desktop" or just like, the raw command in front like this "cd /d: C:\Users\Games\Desktop"

thanks for you're help by the way, it is greatly appreciated.
