How do i access the downloads folder? am i typing the command wrong?

What I’ve tried

I did exactly what the directions said to do for windows


Hi Angelica,
Let’s do a little troubleshooting to see exactly where the problem is coming from.
Instead of cd’ing into that entire path, lets try one step at a time.

cd mnt
cd c
cd Users
…and so on down the line.

This way, you can figure out which part of the path is throwing the error and we can troubleshoot from there.

Try it out, and let me know what you can cd into, and what part doesn’t work.

Another idea is to double check your windows user name, in case you have several or several people are using the same computer.
