POPD

Change directory back to the path/folder most recently stored by the PUSHD command.
POPD will also remove any temporary drive maps created by PUSHD

Syntax
      POPD 

PUSHD and POPD operate on a stack or LIFO (last in, first out) principle and so can be used multiple times.

Example

   C:\Program Files> PUSHD c:\utils
   C:\utils> PUSHD c:\Windows
   C:\Windows> 
   C:\Windows> POPD
   C:\utils> 
   C:\utils> POPD
   C:\Program Files>

Errorlevels

If the directory is successfully changed %ERRORLEVEL% = unchanged, typically this will be 0 but if a previous command set an errorlevel, that will be preserved (this is a bug).

If a bad switch is given %ERRORLEVEL% = 1

POPD is an internal command. If Command Extensions are disabled PUSHD and POPD will not create temporary drive letters.
