Forward Slash/Back Slash, all is Revealed!

Forward/ Slash\Backslash

There’s a whole lot of slashing going on, but which way is which and does it matter? Well, yes it does…

Forward slash is this /, and backslash is this \.

Forward slashes tell your computer you’re looking for something external to your system, like web pages e.g. www.angelalewis.com.au/blog.

Backslashes tell your computer you’re looking for something inside your system, like a drive or a file, e.g. C:\Programs\MSoffice\Word\letters.
