"dir" list directories
"cd \" should get you to the root of the drive
"cd Windows" will go into the Windows folder assuming you have a windows folder in the directory you are in
"cd .." will go down one directory so if you are in C:/Windows/Temp then after the command you will be in C:/Windows
what else do you want to do?
