DOS Tips for Windows XP:

Windows XP cmd tip (DOS isnt dead.) Some command-line folder creation examples:

To create multiple folders at once, add them directly to the "md" command:

C:> md this is a test

To create a folder several folders deep, use:

C:> md thisisa est

Creating a folder with a long name requires the double-quote at the beginning:

C:> md "this is a test

Bonus tip: Windows XP supports the forward slash "/" as a folder divider.

Unix/Linux users:

Use a Unix-style CD command to change your present working directory:

C:> cd Windows/system32/drivers/etc
