display names and paths of Windows directories 

Command


SYNOPSIS

windir [-f] [-l| -s| -t]

windir spec_folder


DESCRIPTION

The windir command uses standard Windows system calls to display directory names to standard output.

When the second form of the command is specified, windir displays the path name for the non-virtual special folder specified by spec_folder. For a list of special folders and what they contain, see the filebox reference page.

If no options or folder are specified, windir returns the name of the Windows directory.

-f 

displays full path names rather than the short DOS path names that are displayed by default.

-s 

displays the name of the Windows system directory, per the Windows GetSystemDirectory() function.

-t 

displays the Windows temporary directory path, per the Windows GetTempPath() function.

The -s and -t options are mutually exclusive.
