Often while using command prompt, I want to create a directory and enter it. To do this I need to type in the following:
C:\Users\Rahul\Documents\Coding>md mydirectory C:\Users\Rahul\Documents\Coding>cd mydirectory
This is such basic stuff, you would think that Windows would have functionality to do this with one command... But does it? No.
Which is why I've come up with the ultimate solution... Which is just common sense, really.
Open up command prompt and type
copy con mdc.cmd.
This let's you create and edit the file 'mdc.cmd', which is located by default in the
@md %1 && cd /d %1, and press enter. These commends basically pass on the first command line argument of
md, and then chose that directory with
cd /d. I like to have the
/dswitch because it allows us to switch the current drive as well, but it is totally up to you.
Press Ctrl+Z and hit enter to stop editing the file.
Now everytime you want to create and enter a directory, just enter
mdc mydirectory and Command Prompt will automatically enter
mydirectory after creating it.
