cmd.exe and spaces in filenames

Recommended Posts

This is a newbie question, for which I could not find an

answer in the Win7 help:

How to access directories/files with spaces in their names

from Windows 7 cmd.exe command line? I tried with the space

and with some html space markers, as %20 and . None

worked.

FAT had an 8.3 filename for use in such cases, but

NTFS does not.

O/S: Windows 7 Home, x86 version.

Unless you have disabled/removed it, Win 7, including Win 7 x64, has the ability to utilize the 8.3 version of the file name or path as well. You just have to figure out what it is.

Cheers and Regards

Well, sure, if you want to "cheat" and do it the easy way. LOL Thanks for the reminder. :)
