Files

Write down the full paths of all the files in the picture on the previous page.

You can browse through all the directories using Windowsexplorer or at the command prompt by using CD to change up or CD.. to change down directories.

A recently used file list stores the full path and has a maximum length of 255 characters which, in FAT32 and NTFS, is the longest the name of any file stored on the drive.

C:\command.com

C:\Windows\sol.exe
