How to make a directory in Windows that starts with a dot?

Ever tried to create a directory in windows that starts with a dot (period). The windows explorer wouldn’t let you do that. To do this you need to use DOS.

For example, consider that you need to create a directory called “.work” in the folder “C:\user”

  1. Start> Run> (then type “cmd” and press ok)
  2. Go to the “C:\user” directory cd C:\user
  3. then type md .themes

This finally creates a folder that has a name starting with a dot.
