Does anyone know how I can get my console window to go to a proper directory? It is using H:\ as its default (this is a backup server) and I want to be able to use C:\ but when I try to use cd C:\Foldername I just get ignored. Anyone any ideas? Ta

Actually you're not being ignored, it's just that the system has no visual way to show it's success other than to prompt you with H:> again. If you're on the H: drive and type in cd c:\winnt and then type in c: to change drives you will find that c: is at \winnt showing you're cd command worked on c:
You can place a shortcut of CMD.EXE on your desktop (on my PC, CMD.EXE is at C:\WINNT\system32\CMD.EXE). Then right click the shortcut and select Properties. Under the Shortcut tab in the Start in field you can enter the path of the directory you want to start in each time you use the shortcut. I use Win 2000 Prof, so should be very similar for NT I think. [ May 22, 2003: Message edited by: Richard Hawkes ]
