How to Change Default Address of Command Line Windows XP

P: 16
I know you can use cd "name of file path" to change the address but I want the address to be a certain filepath once I open the command line to make things easier. How would you do that?

Click Start, Run and type Regedit.exe

* Navigate to the following branch:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Software \ Microsoft \ Command Processor

In the right-pane, double-click Autorun and set the startup folder path as its data, preceded by "CD /d ". If Autorun value is missing, you need to create one, of type REG_EXPAND_SZ or REG_SZ in the above location.

Right click on the shortcut of "Command Prompt", then you will see a textbox labeled "Target", change the address in this textbox will work.
