    hi ive been trying for the past few days on making a shortcut (batch file) that will allow me to open a specific folder in my flash drive when i have it plugged in.
    i want to open up a file that is in my flash drive with a batch file located in another file.
    both files are on my flash drive both of them are hidden from the computer but with the batch file directory i can open them. i have the same batch file for both only different file names and in one of my hidden files (Documents) i have a batch file to open up the other hidden file (pictures) but whenever i run the batch file it says it cant find "pictures" but it looks for "pictures" in the "Documents" file. i want to know how i can add directory to the batch file in "Documents" so that i can open "pictures" without it looking in the file the batch it in.
    i will walk you through the file

    Code:
                        * represents the part that is actualy in the file 
    [EMAIL="*@echo"]*@echo[/EMAIL] off
    *set pass=(the password)
    *echo Please Enter Password
    *set /p ui=
    *if %ui%==%pass% (goto open)<if the password is right then the file will go to :open
    *echo Access Denied<if the password is wrong it displays this and then closes CMD
    *pause
    *exit
    *:open <right here is where it should go if the password is right but what im confused abt is where the hell i put the directory ive already tried cd C:\F: but it still acts like the file its suposed to open is in "Documents"
    *start (Pictures)
    
    please help me
