If you ever used 4DOS or 4NT you probably remember the feature they call "alias". You can take command with parameters and assign it a short name. It really helps with daily command line chores.
But if you don't have 4DOS/4NT you have to be resourceful. This is what I do:
- create a folder (I usually name it something line CommandAlias)
- put a path to new folder in your system PATH variable (shortcut is Win+Pause / Advanced / Environment Variables)
- now create a .bat file with a nice short name and put a command you would to to create a alias into that file (you can use @echo off and put a @ in front of every command in order to make it silent)
And there you have it! A nice little alias feature is born.
I use it daily. Fore example "e" switches to the right disk and moves me in the right folder:
