HOW TO COPY -PASTE AND CUT-PASTE A FILE USING COMMAND PROMPT


In my last post HOW TO MAKE A TEXT FILE USING COMMAND PROMPT I mentioned the steps to make a text file , how to see what’s written in it and how to rename it using command prompt. Today’s post is like a next step toward learning command prompt. So let’s not waste time and come to the point.

STEPS TO COPY-PASTE A FILE

Follow these steps to copy-paste a file from one drive to another…..

# go to command prompt or press windows key + R and in that box type cmd and click on ok

# now move to that directory where that file exist which you want to copy-paste to another. For ex to copy a file from d drive type- d: and press enter, now you are in d drive

Suppose I have a file in my d drive with name thevtech.txt and I want to copy it to f drive so for that I  will have to do this in command prompt

# type- copy thevtech.txt  f:\ and press enterCOPY A FILE

THAT’S IT

Now you will find a copy of that file in your f drive

STEPS TO CUT-PASTE A FILE

Follow the steps to cut-paste a file from one drive to another…..

# go to command prompt or press windows key + R and in that box type cmd and click on ok

# now move to that directory where that file exist which you want to cut-paste to another. For ex to cut a file from d drive type- d: and press enter, now you are in d drive

Now this time you just want to move that file from d drive to f drive so you will have to do this in command prompt

#type- move thevtech.txt f:\ and press enterMOVE A FILE

THAT’S IT

Now your file is in f drive and no copy is left behind

NOTE:- THIS PROCESS IS NOT VALID FOR FOLDER
