Copy a File

We can use the COPY command to copy one file to another.
 
Directions:
1. Type: copy quick.ltr quick2.ltr and press Enter.
2. DOS will tell us one file has been copied.
3. Type: dir q* and press Enter.
4. We should have two files listed with different names.
 
NOTE:
Filenames cannot be more than eight characters in length. File extensions cannot be more than three characters in length.
