PUSHD

Change the current directory/folder and store the previous folder/path for use by the POPD command.

syntax
      PUSHD pathname 
   
key
   pathname - the folder to make 'current' (UNC names accepted)

For example

c:\Program Files> PUSHD c:\utils
c:\utils> 
c:\utils> POPD
c:\Program Files>
   
c:\Program Files> PUSHD \\Server_23\MyShare\MyFolder
Z:\MyFolder>
Z:\MyFolder> POPD
c:\Program Files>


Networks
When a UNC path is specified, PUSHD will create a temporary drive map and will then use that new drive.

Temporary drive letters are allocated in reverse alphabetical order
so if Z: is free it will be used.

If Command Extensions are disabled the PUSHD command will not accept a network (UNC) path.
