    Using command prompt in drive D:


    Hello,

    I have to run some executables on my USB key which is drive D. I need to do this with a Windows XP command prompt. However, the command prompt doesn't allow me to go to drive D and goes up only upto C:\>
    Is there a way to make the prompt at D:\>
    I can specify the path to my file on the USB key at the prompt, but that makes it very cumbersome.

    Thanks for your help.

    Normally you'd open a command window and simply enter D:<enter>
    That changes the current drive to D
