Set the DOS Prompt

We can set or change the standard system prompt to display the name of the directory or subdirectory we are currently working in.
 
Directions:
1. Type: prompt $p $g and press Enter.
2. The DOS prompt tells us that we are working in the C directory (drive) and in the Info subdirectory.
3. Type: dir and press Enter.
4. The single dot stands for the current directory. The double dots stand for the parent directory (root). The dots are often referred to as place markers.
