    I apologize for such a stupid question as this, but I just don't get it!
    I have a file named alias.lst which has a single entry: alias d = dir /w
    Following help on how to load aliases from a list I enter: alias /r alias.lst
    Then to find out if anything happened I enter: alias
    This produces the response: Unknown command "d"
    Why?

    Leave the "alias" out. You're mixing the command line and batch file

    Alias.lst should have the line:
    d = dir /w

    Try that

    Alternatively, you can set up your aliases however you like them, and then save the whole alias table to a file with

    Code:
    alias > alias.lst
