  cd /d F:\
changes folder and drive,
   cd F:\
only changes the folder for that drive, but does not switch to the drive. That is, if you do a   dir F:  it will display the contents of the folder you changed to. Each drive has its own "current folder".

No CD in front.  Just type F:


to move from drive C: to drive D:, at the prompt type D: and enter.
you can do the same with the CD command : cd /d D:

to move from C: drive to the folder F:\apps type cd /d f:\apps
