    Press Win-R and type "cmd" and press Enter to start the command prompt.
    Then:

    c:
    cd "\Documents and Settings\Owner\My Documents\android"
    dir /p

    Hi,
    in the command window, you type
    (1) C:
    (2) cd "Documents and Settings"
    (3) cd Owner
    (4) cd "My Documents"
    (5) cd android

    That'll work too... except you might need to do "cd \" between step 1 and step 2 if your command prompt opens in a directory that's not the root directory.

    He shouldn't need that at all since "Documents and Settings" is only on NT operating systems and beyond which do not require 8.3 naming conventions although thy do provide legacy 8.3 support if not disabled in the registry.
