how come on the command prompt in windows isn't familiarized wih the terms touch, ls, and pwd.
Command Prompt is different from Command Line.
dir in windows,
echo %cd%. Either way, this command line course is for unix based operating systems. the command prompt in windows is quit limited, you can learn it, but i heard more positive story's about powershell
Actually, using just cd with no argument will work the same as pwd no need to use echo %cs%
