How to change the pwd in Ubuntu

I cant figure out how to change the pwd in Ubuntu. Iā€™m trying to unzip the Git skeleton project. I typed /mnt/c/Users/<>/Downloads. Nothing happened. I typed cd and a space also and nothing happened.

The format should be ā€œ/mnt/c/Users/ernestharden/Downloadsā€. Exclude ā€œ<>ā€. Those symbols were in the instructions to indicate that you input your own username as they will be different for everybody else.

Hi Gabriel,

Thanks. Actually I put in the wrong username. Slightly embarrassing!
