lam using windows 8. At first when l was opening command prompt it was using C:\Users\Software Developer> (Software Developer is my computer name) and l could easily access my desktop usingC:\Users\Software Developer>cd.. desktop

l dont know what happened, now the command prompt by default is on c:\windows\systems32> if you enter dir it shows all the files on systems32.

l want to get it back to C:\Users\Software Developer> so that l can access my desktop easily, and l know it has something to do with the Environment variables path/settings. Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you Brink, l didnt know that there are two types of command prompt, the elevated command prompt - which opens with the c:\windows\systems32> and the normal command prompt which opens with c:\users\*computer name>

l have been trying to solve this thing for the past two days :) THANK YOU Brink.

Create a shortcut with:
C:\Windows\system32\cmd.exe /K cd %USERPROFILE%
and set to run as Admin

Here's the shotcut:
