    Notepad puts Y instead of \


    When I'm making a .bat file, the computer automatically puts some weird letter 'Y' as '\' but when I copy and paste the weird looking 'Y' lets say in this thread post it pastes as '\'.
    As some pictures are posted.

    So will the command still work when its the weird looking 'Y'? or will I need '\' to make the command work? and if so I may I fix the problem to make weird looking 'Y' change to '\'?
