Help with ubuntu

hi, I am currently doing prep-work for online cohort. I successfully created a directory on Ubuntu named “prep-work” but couldnt find it anywhere on running explorer.exe .
not sure where I am going wrong

Why are you looking for it in explorer? Seems doable though.

I found this confusing at first too. In ubuntu, I think you typically start off in a directory that isn’t normally accessible through the file explorer in windows. So if you create folders there you can only as far as I could tell access them through ubuntu or terminal. Which can be done. But if you navigate to C drive then you can create files and folders you can find in windows, imo makes it all easier to work with. I think this command will get you there —> cd /mnt/c/

and then keep using cd to get to the directory you want to keep your projects.
