Yes, you can use that to change directory.

Er, no: you cannot.  Try it and see.

Er, actually, in the context of the question, you can. The question
as I understood it wasn't "can you use 'cd c:' to change directory", but
rather "can you use 'cd c:\docs' to change directory, or only cd
'docs'". Here's the full original context:

So on the command-line you would do something like

cd c:/Documents and Settings/Joe B/My Documents/html files

to get into the right folder and then run the batch file from there.
I'm not sure if you can use

cd c:

tbh, i think you have to skip the c: bit and plunge straight into the
rest of it

You're right that *on it's own* "cd c:" doesn't change directory, it
only shows the current directory of the C drive.

Funny quirk of the DOS system...
