How to open a command prompt in a specific directory in Windows?

Now, here’s how you can easily navigate to a specific directory in CMD on Windows. In this video, we will teach you two ways to open the command prompt in a specific folder.

The fastest and easiest way is to click on the address bar, type “CMD,” and press enter. You will be in the folder location. However, to run it as an administrator, you might have to use another method.

Simply go to the start menu, type “CMD” or “command prompt,” right-click, and select “Run as administrator.” Copy the location of the folder by clicking on the address bar and pressing “Ctrl + C.” Then, in CMD, type “CD” followed by a space and the address location (e.g., “cd D:/..”). Please note that if the location is on a different drive, you might need to change the drive first. Simply type the letter of the drive followed by a semicolon and then press enter.

So, this is how you can use this shortcut method in the command prompt to navigate to specific folders in Windows. Please give it a try and let us know. Thank you very much.
