I'm needing some help with changing to certain directories. I've just started to use MSdos quite recently, and I've caught on that extra long filenames like "Extralongfilename" need to be replaced by six letters and ~1, like "cd Extral~1" when you are changing directories. I'm also aware that you must omit the gaps with something like "My Documents", as in "cd MyDocu~1". The only directory I've come across that I cannot open is Program Files, which is quite a useful one.
cd "Program Files"
and countless others.
I think the problem lies in the fact that the seventh character is a space and not a letter. Can anyone tell me what I should be doing to change directories to this?
