How to explorer UNC folders from command line.


If you try to explorer UNC from cmd, you will get error :

“CMD does not support UNC paths as current directories.”



so, how can I explorer ??

Simple, using PUSHD command.

c:\>pushd “\\SERVER\Shares\Information Technology”


PUSHD will create a temporary drive letter that points to that specified network resource and then change the current drive and directory, using the newly defined drive letter. 

Temporary drive letters are allocated from Z: on down, using the first unused drive letter found.



How to  delete temporary drive letter  ?

simple – run popd.exe command.

POPD Will delete any temporary drive letter created by PUSHD.
