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
