Learn Command Prompt in 10 Minutes

Dear friends, this time I will give a little knowledge about basic commands that are often used in the command prompt (CMD). About what CMD is maybe I will discuss in another post or maybe friends can find out for yourself what CMD is!

Here I will discuss the basics where this will be a special thing for friends who are just learning CMD. God willing, I will continue this material to the next level, the important thing is that friends can understand the basics first :)

Maybe for those of you who don’t know the function of CMD, they will think CMD is useless, in fact very few people want to open CMD for this reason, it’s cake! But there’s nothing wrong with knowing it as additional knowledge for your own friends.

As time goes by and technology develops, CMD is rarely used. Remembering that in the past, everything that you wanted to do was all using text-based commands (all typed), and now you have been spoiled with things that are GUI-based (all click and click, click, click, click) until CMD is forgotten :(

Let’s reminisce about cmd together with my little scribble in my post :), ok, let’s go straight to the point of this post. Here I will discuss some of them:


>md and rd


cd , cd .. dan cd \

Example of a cd command image ..
