Pop Quiz: Windows command line file and folder tools

Do you know the difference between the ftype and assoc commands? Test your knowledge of working with files and folders from the Windows command line.

For many end users, the Windows Explorer GUI is the only mechanism they'll use to manipulate files and folders. But, IT pros often find times when they need to copy files, delete folders, or change file type associations from the command line. So, I've put together this short quiz to test your knowledge of working with files an folder from the Windows 7 command prompt.

Note: Unfortunately, our poll tool, which I use to create each pop quiz, doesn't let me indicate a correct answer after each question. To keep from giving away the answers before everyone has a chance to test his/her knowledge, and ruining all the fun, I've published the answers on the second page of this blog post. I encourage everyone to answer all the questions before looking at the second page or using your favorite search engine to find the answers.

Answers are on the next page.
