How to Create a Directory:

Type - md (space)(drive you want to put it on)(name of directory) (press ENTER)

Purpose:

Creates a new subdirectory.

If you do not specifically enter a path designation, the directory will be created as a subdirectory within the current directory.
There is no limit to the number of directories you can create. However, the maximum length of any single path specification is 63 characters, including backslashes.

Example

To create the new subdirectory LETTERS within the existing directory NEWSALES on drive A, enter:

md a:\newsales\letters

If you are already working in the NEWSALES directory, you can create the new subdirectory LETTERS within that directory by entering

md letters
