Creating a directory
Creating a directory is helpful if you want to organize related files into groups to make them easy to find.

For example, to create a directory named FRUIT, type the following,
C:\> md fruit
By typing above command, directory named fruit is created at the path which was selected i.e. if C:/> is selected, then fruit directory is created in C drive.
2. If you want to check whether directory is created successfully or not then use dir command to verify.
by typing above command, list of all directoires gets displayed on the screen where you can check whether fruit directory is created successfully or not.
3. If you want to move inside the fruit directory, you need to change directory that is you need to use cd command.
C:\> cd fruit
After typing above command and pressing enter button, following gets displayed.
Similarly, you can create another directory inside fruit directory, you can use above listed commands and verify the creation of directory.

C:\> rd fruit
By typing above command, directory named fruit will get deleted from C drive.
