It is a good idea to separate directories for different uses. It is possible to do so, and the following are steps to do so:

1) Type in cmd in the search bar.

2) Right-click on Command Prompt.

3) Click on Run as Administrator.


4) Now when Command Prompt is open type cd which stands for change directory. Do not hit Enter key.

5) Determine the new directory’s path and type ahead of the cd command.

6) Press the Enter key.

Now the new prompt will guide you to the changed directory.

The “Directory” and “Folder” are the same and creating it in Microsoft Windows would be easy. It can be done in two ways: using the command prompt and via GUI using the Windows Explorer. For me, I can create a folder in any of those methods.

Creating a directory using the command prompt is, I think, for advanced users only who are knowledgeable in DOS environment and knows how to navigate well between folders. This method requires a lot of typing and accuracy because every step has to be executed with a command unlike when you’re using a GUI you just have to click and click.

Creating a new folder in Windows Explorer

For beginners, the recommended method is using the Windows Explorer. Click “Start”, “All Programs”, “Accessories” then select “Windows Explorer”. In Windows Explorer, select a drive then right-click an empty spot, point to “New” and then select “Folder”. Type the name of the new folder and hit Enter.
