How to use UNC paths inside Windows Command prompt?.

If you are reading this article which means you want to open a UNC path from the command prompt. Yes I also wanted to play with some UNC paths just before write this article.




I thought it will be good if I share that knowledge with you.


It's easy just use "pushd" without quotes in front of the UNC path you want to use. This little command will assign your location as a temporary network location and will treat the location as a drive. To remove the network drive assignment you need to place "popd" at the end of the script.


pushd \\Server\my_share
          #Rest
          #of
          #the
          #script

          popd 




Hope this helped.
