Use this commands:
dir -> list your folders & files from the current path (ex: c:\folder);
cd .. -> change folder up to one level
cd \ -> go to the root
cd FOLDER -> change the folder to FOLDER
If you have XP, in command prompt is easy because when you type a command, and then you hit the TAB kay, it autocompletes with the name of the folders. Hit the TAB key again until you get the right folder.
Example: you are in the C:\FOLDER and here you have 2 JAPANES-NAMED folder ^_75 and 9$`2 (can't write in Jpanes here). In command prompt you will have o do:
c:\FOLDER>cd (press TAB key)
c:\FOLDER>cd ^_75 (press ENTER to enter or TAB for the next folder)
c:\FOLDER\^_75> (now you are here ;))
If you want to make a batch scipt, it is more difficult.
Type HELP FOR in your command promp and you will find more about manipulating folders from batch scipts.
