SetCurrentDirectory Method

[This documentation is for preview only, and is subject to change in later releases. Blank topics are included as placeholders.]

Sets the application's current working directory to the specified directory.

Namespace:  System.IO
Assembly:  System.IO (in System.IO.dll)

public static void SetCurrentDirectory(
	string path
)

Parameters

path
Type: System..::..String
The path to which the current working directory is set.

When the application terminates, the working directory is restored to its original location (the directory where the process was started).

The path parameter is permitted to specify relative or absolute path information. Relative path information is interpreted as relative to the current working directory. To obtain the current working directory, see GetCurrentDirectory.

Trailing spaces are removed from the end of the path parameter before setting the directory.

The path parameter is not case-sensitive.
