I'm standing at E:\Desktop\ and i want to open a folder has name is New folders inside Desktop folder. In command line, i type New folders (very simple).Then i received a message box "File not found". Who can help me this case? Thanks you!

You use the same syntax as if you would in a Windows Command Prompt

cd "New folders"

It eludes me why you want to do this, but anyway...

Thanks for your answer, as you said, i must type completely its location in command line. it's "cd E:\Desktop\New folder". It's a nightmare. It should have a better solution! – trungphan Oct 6 '13 at 11:03

of course you will get this error message. First you need to create a new folder with this command mkdir then cd New-FileName (Note- remove this <, >)

Thanks for your help. In my case, "New folder" is still exists inside Desktop folder and I want to navigate to it without type cd. Do you have any suggestion? – trungphan Oct 6 '13 at 10:57
