DOS cmd - Shortcut to TEMP folder

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I had recently discovered that at the cmd prompt,

simply type "cd %temp%"

it will directly navigate to "C:\Users\User\AppData\Local\Temp>" without having typed in the full path.


is there similar tricks/shortcuts to get to Windows -or- System32 -or- Documents -or- Pictures -or-Musics ect... folders? This shortcut is default assigned by Microsoft not defined by end user.

any recollections?
