Using the prompt command without the text parameter

When you use the prompt command without specifying a value for text, prompt resets the command prompt to the default setting, the current drive letter followed by the current directory and a greater-than sign (>).

Using the $p value for text

If you include the $p character in the text parameter, Windows NT reads your disk after you enter each command to determine the current drive and path. This can take extra time, especially for floppy disk drives.
