you want to change int othe E: drive at command prompt?

type the below at the C:\> prompt:

E:

That's all!

When in windows, you want to open the drive in explorer, type the same as above into the "Run" box or address bar.

An interesting thing is, if you are in C:\ drive (at command prompt) and want to go directly to E:\games, you'd run the following command:

cd /D E:\games

instead of two consecutive commands

E:  (to go to drive)
cd games (to change current working folder to that one)

thanks!

BTW. I am setting up to run PHP and MySql and Apache on my laptop (for web site forum testing) and although it has recommended that these be installed on the C: I have installed it all on the E: instead.

So what changes do i need to make when it asks me to enter "localhost"?

Thanks! :thumbup

localhost has nothing to do with drives. If you want an easy way to setup apache, php, mysql and such, look for XAMPP. Unzip and you're done.

localhost points to your loopback ip (127.0.0.1) and it's defined in your hosts file. It's all there is to it, it won't change a thing (nothing to do with drives).

Drive wise, it's only a matter of your config files and such to point to the right folders.
