'pwd' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file. [Windows]


If you type in command pwd in Windows command prompt to print name of current/working directory and you see the following error,

C:\Users\Code2care>pwd
'pwd' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

Well nothing wrong with the command, but you typed in a Unix command in Window Prompt which is not supported, you would need to use cd command instead to display the current directory you are in,

C:\Users\Code2care>help cd
Displays the name of or changes the current directory.

CHDIR [/D] [drive:][path]
CHDIR [..]
CD [/D] [drive:][path]
CD [..]

  ..   Specifies that you want to change to the parent directory.

C:\Users\Code2care>cd
C:\Users\Code2care
