In Python the working directory can be changed by following way:-

import os 


When the current working directory in a subprocess changed it does not change the current working directory in the parent process. 

Another way it can be done by using contextmanager:-


Context managers in Python facilitate the proper handling of resources like file operations or database connections.

import os 

from contextlib import contextmanager 


def working_directory(directory):

    owd = os.getcwd()



       yield directory
