: 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,
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.
