Default command prompt problems

I was wondering if there is a way to copy a directory into another directory using the command prompt. I used the xcopy command with no switches, but this only copied files in the directory and not other directories. For instance, if I have a folder A and iside that I have a.txt and a folder B and inside B I have b.txt. The xcopy only copies a.txt and nothing else. Maybe there is a switch I do not know about? I typed xcopy /? to see all the flags, but there was nothing of use.

Never mind, I found the switch. It is /s. Thanks.
