I've been playing with the command prompt to move files from one directory to another. I'm finding it wastes a lot of time typing the whole pathway to each directory and I'm curious if there's a way to create an alias to a specific directory?

For example instead of:
move filename C:\Users\a\b\c\d\e...

this:
move filename alias
where alias = C:\Users\a\b\c\d\e...

I made a .bat that can change the command prompt to a specific directory but I don't know how to incorporate this to move a file.

Thanks!

Seems a little complicated..?
I just mark them and drag, or copy/paste them. them
