ever since i learned about %windir% and %appdata% my life has gotten alot easier when it comes to writing batch files for friends. but i have also been trying to find a complete and comprehensive list of these directory shortcuts within windows. i am almoast sure there is one for my documents as well as program files but there doesent seem to be alot of information on these commands.
