Dear Stefan,

Following command may useful

local folder: dir . dirs "*",respectcase
foreach comname of local folder {
dis "`comname'"
cd "`comname'"
}


What you have to do is first change the directory to C:Users as it
always in same path
cd "C:\Users\"

I think in this location you have only one folder which is the
computer name. If you have more than one you have to use if condition.
It may be possible as length of the computers name  are 4 and last
three are numbers.


regards,
Chamara
