How to create directory and rename
using MS-DOS
In my last published by using MS-DOS, you know now how to use the command line and also how to use the change directory and display the files in a folder. Now, another use of MS-DOS is you can create a new folder or create directory using the command line. This folder or directory is useful for creating a new storage within your drive for your different files. And if you wanted to rename the current name of a folder you can do it also by following the instruction below.

HOW TO MAKE DIRECTORY OR A NEW FOLDER

  1. Open your MS-DOS, using run in winxp or using search button in win7
  2. Then type CMD, then press enter key.
  3. In command line, type the command MKdir then name of a folder you want in your document. ex: c:\User\Home>Mkdir Bloggers then press enter key or you can use MD Bloggers, both of this command is executable. Or in your USB flash drive command line, ex. E:\>MKDIR ImportantFiles
  4. Use DIR command to confirm your new folder has been created.
HOW TO RENAME A FOLDER OR A DIRECTORY

  1. In command line of MS-DOS, type the command DIR to check the files you want to rename. ex. c:\User\Home>DIR then press enter key.
  2. After you check your files, type in command lines the command ren then name of a folder, ex. c:\User\Home>ren bloggers blog, where ren is the command to rename, bloggers is the old folder name, and blog is the new folder.

TIPS!
  • You can use DIR /w in your command line to display files in wide list format or dir /l for lower case display and dir /p to pause after screenfull of information. For other parameter of command use DIR /? in command line.
