hello all

i have a problem with command prompt and since i am using xp pro i figured this is the appropriatte place for the question?

i am using xp pro with sp1

i am tryin to change the directory where command prompt initially opens in.

from start/programs/accessories/command prompt

i open command prompt and it seems my target is my computer(desktop) my start in is D:\john and both lines are not changeable(lighter txt than other lines)

and when i click command prompt like this it opens then closes.

but if i go to start/run/cmd command prompt stays open but the directory is :
C:\Documents and settings\Administrator

i would like it to read this if its possible without changing the directory every single time if its possible?


i use to be able to change the path of where command prompt opens by changing the target and start in boxes in the properties of command prompt from accessories but seems i can not do that now.

any help or advise would be greatly appreciatted.

i am not very good at command prompt as it is but i use command prompt every day in the path i typed above

just continuosly changing the path eachtime becomes very annoying

plz any advise for me?

thank you very much

**the cmd prompt newbie**
