DOSBox is a way to use DOS to interact with Windows on a computer, and is done through the C drive on a computer. Use DOSBox with tips from a software developer in this free video about computer technology.
Hi, my name is Dave Andrews today I'm going to show you how to use DOSBox. The very first things I'm going to show to you is that DOSBox interacts with Windows directories just like normal as though you were sitting at Windows except with a DOS interface. I'm going to open up my computer, and on my c drive I've created a text file just as DOS dot text, as you can see it says this file is being displayed in DOS even though it was created in Windows. So let's run DOS box. Once DOSBox is up the very first thing that we have to do is mount a directory that it's going to use as the c drive, to do so just type the mount command space we're going to give it the drive letter of c space now give it the folder we're going to use as the c drive I'm just going to go to c colon slash on my desktop. So it's showing you now that drive c is mounted as local directory c. We can go to our c drive by saying c colon. And you can run any command that you could in DOS normally just type DIR for instance as you can see we get a directory listing from our c drive. To show that those files are interacting I'm going to give the command type DOS dot text, that's the text file that I just opened up a moment ago. And it is displaying that this file is being displayed in DOS even though it was created in Windows. My name is Dave Andrews and I've just showed you how to use DOSBox.
