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”
- Start> Run> (then type “cmd” and press ok)
- Go to the “C:\user” directory
- then type
This finally creates a folder that has a name starting with a dot.
