For one time use, you should do what Nyizsa suggested.

If you need to do it again and again, you can create a customized shortcut to command prompt.

Right click desktop -> New -> Shortcut
Type cmd in the location field, and give a suitable name to the shortcut.

Now right-click the shortcut -> Properties -> Change the "Start in" field to the place where you want it to point initially.
eg., You can change it to C:\Program Files\, so that the command prompt will start up pointing to C:\Program Files\

Well that's just nifty.

Now I have a short cut strait to C:\

Yep, you can start creating short-cuts.

But maybe it's more easy to just learn some basic cmd-commands (dos commands)

Use 'cd' to 'Change Directory', and remember:
'.' is where you are,
'..' is one up.
So if you are in 'c:\windows', 'cd ..' brings you to 'c:\'

'\' is all up to the top as Nyisza mentioned.
If you want to change to another map, type 'cd [mapname]',
for example 'cd windows' if you are in 'c:\'.

If you just want to fly from anywhere to a map, put a '\' for the total name. So if you are in 'C:\Documents and Settings\Myprofile\Desktop' and you want to go to 'C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office' you can type
'cd..' [enter],
'cd..' [enter],
'cd..' [enter],
'cd program files'[enter],
'cd microsoft office' [enter]

or you can just type 'cd \program files\microsoft office'.

Tip: if you are there and you want your 'My Computer' window, type
'explorer .' (Yes, the dot means: explore this map!)

If you need more commands, just read a ms-dos-tutorial (for example here or browse google for 'ms-dos tutorial'.

Good luck!
