That is probably your home directory, and your prompt is set at $P$G. Type "help prompt" at the console and it shows how to change it. Or just type "help" and you can learn all about the commands available.

Okay
Thank you !

I typed help and enter
It showed all the commands...
It was like this:
CD : Displays the name of or changes the current directory.
But,
Why should we use CD\ ?
Why we should not use only CD ?
Because In the commands it only showed CD.....

Type "help cd", or help followed by any command name. The information is all there, you just need to read it.

Ahem...

cd ..\..

Command Prompt: 11 basic commands you should know (cd, dir, mkdir, etc.) | Digital Citizen[^]

The prompt you're looking at is telling you the directory path you're currently in. To get the C:\, you need to Change Directory to \.
