Copy a File

We can use the COPY command to copy one file to another.
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.
Filenames cannot be more than eight characters in length. File extensions cannot be more than three characters in length.
