cd D:\ will not work

D: [will change to the D drive]
cd \bcd [will change to the bcd directory]
wxppro [will start the execution of the wxppro.exe program file]

start wxppro.exe [will also start the program but is unnecessarily longer :thumbsup: ]

when in the command prompt type help for a full list of commands

type command /? to get help on any command - eg

cd /? [for help on the cd command]

type exit to get out of the command prompt window
