I'm trying to get fish to recognize an absolute path, either when changing directories or when giving an input to a program. I'm used to typing an absolute path as "C:/..." but in fish the only way I can get it to recognize an absolute path is to write instead "//owner-pc/...". If I do this when I'm changing directories, C:/ is replaced by /o/ thereafter. What is going on here - How are paths represented in fish?
In particular, how do I refer to a file on a different drive D:/ by its absolute path? What if I want to cd to a directory on a different drive?
(I am using Fish on Windows, with Cygwin.)
