you cannot change a directory (CD) to a file ONLY a folder
so if alfie is a file on the desktop - CD is NOT going to find the path

how are you logged into windows 8 with a local account or a microsoft account

looks like you are you using the command prompt as Admin ?
but can you confirm you are ?


seems to be working OK for me om windows 7 and 10
I dont have 8/8.1 available

C:\Windows\system32>cd c:/users/wayne/desktop/test

c:\Users\Wayne\Desktop\test>

---------------------------------------------------

c:\Users\Wayne\Desktop\test>cd c:/users/wayne/desktop/"test folder"

c:\Users\Wayne\Desktop\test folder>

---------------------------------------------------

c:\Users\Wayne\Desktop\test folder>cd c:\users\wayne\desktop

c:\Users\Wayne\Desktop>

---------------------------------------------------

c:\Users\Wayne\Desktop>cd c:\users\wayne\desktop\test

c:\Users\Wayne\Desktop\test>

---------------------------------------------------

c:\Users\Wayne\Desktop\test>cd c:\users\wayne\desktop\test folder

c:\Users\Wayne\Desktop\test folder>
