In Dos there was this file you can change that would change your starting directory when you start your computer. So I wonder is there such a file in Windows, because I am learning assembly programming and I want all my files to be in 1 place. Right now my command prompt is at C:\Windows\system32> and every time I have to type cd \ then go to my assembly file folder which takes some time.

I figured out how to do it. Just create a shortcut on desktop (rightclick-emty-space->new->shortcut and type cmd.exe) then you go to properties and change the start in path to whatever you want it. There is also the hard way to do it and go and change some registry values but the first way is much easier
