[SOLVED] CMD does not support UNC paths as current directories

If you try to cd to a network drive from the Windows CMD, you will get the following error:

CMD does not support UNC paths as current directories

Instead of cd command in CMD you can use a pushd command, that creates a drive mapping to the network share and then changes into a path relative to the share it creates.

In PowerShell you should be able to cd to a network drive without any errors as it natively supports UNC paths and the cd command.

In this small note i am showing how to cd to a network drive from the Windows CMD and fix the error: “CMD does not support UNC paths as current directories“.

‘CD’ to Network Drive

Change a directory to a network drive in CMD:

C:\> pushd \\path\to\share

Change a directory to a network drive in PowerShell:

PS C:\> cd \\path\to\share
