# How to get C:/ on the command line

command line

I am on Windows 10.

What I am trying to do is load Adobe Dreamweaver extensions via the command line on Windows. I want to navigate to C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Extension Manager CSx\

I am following the instructions here.

If I choose Command Prompt (Admin) I get `C:\Windows\system32>`

If I choose Command Prompt only I get `C:\Users\USER>`

How do I get to `C:\`

This is what is happening. See screen recording

Typing `cd \` will move you from any folder on the drive to the root folder of that drive.

If you're in `C:\Windows\System32`, type `cd \` and press Enter to move to `C:\`.

If the path has spaces, enclose it in double-quotes. So, in your case, from `C:\Users\YourName`, type `cd "\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Extension Manager CSx\"` and then Enter.

Other useful options:

Typing `cd ..` will move you up one level from the current directory (for instance, from `C:\Windows\System32` to `C:\Windows`

Typing `cd \newfolder` will move you to a new folder relative to the drive root (for example, from `C:\Windows\System32` to `C:\Users\YourName`, type `cd \Users\YourName`).

Typing `cd /d d:\temp` will change drives and directories in one operation (for instance, from `C:\Users` to `D:\temp`)

Type `cd /?` at the command prompt for more options.
