In order to store all DOSBox / QuickBASIC related files, we have to add another directory (C:\oldDOS\Progs) to our folder structure.
Copy or move all your DOS stuff to that directory:
[Fig. 3.1 - 3.2: Directories]
Now we can restart DOSBox, as described in Part 1, Fig. 2.2 with one exception:
In order to have full access to all data in Progs, we'll integrate that directory as drive D (Fig. 4.1). Here we go:
Type mount C C:\oldDOS\QB45
Type mount D C:\oldDOS\Progs
To change to drive C, type C:
Last but not least, type in qb and confirm with
Finally we are able to load, execute, modify and save every source code stored in drive D!

The time-consuming typing before each start of QuickBASIC is extremely annoying.
Is that really necessary? Fortunately, the answer is: No!
