: Guys,

: I'm trying to move files when one directory is not local. Is there a way w/out having to use the full path?

: For ex., from my desktop:

: move folder1\text1.txt folder2

: works, yet from inside folder2 I must enter

: move text1.txt c:\documents and settings\macd\desktop\folder1

: Is there a way to shorten that path? I'm also surfing trying to find if I can move files between these folders if I were in a folder on the root w/out having to type

: move c:\documents and settings\macd\desktop\folder1\text1.txt c:\documents and settings\macd\desktop\folder2

: I'm still learning but typing out the entire path is a pain. Any short way?

: Thank you,

: Mac

Not that I know of. The complete path must be specified. If the folder is contained within other folders, you have to tell DOS where to find it.
