Once you have a folder, you can move into it using the cd command. cd means change directory. You invoke it specifying a folder to move into. You can specify a folder name, or an entire path.

Example:

mkdir fruits
cd fruits

Now you are into the fruits folder.

You can use the .. special path to indicate the parent folder:

cd .. #back to the home folder

The # character indicates the start of the comment, which lasts for the entire line after it’s found.

You can use it to form a path:

mkdir fruits
mkdir cars
cd fruits
cd ../cars

There is another special path indicator which is ., and indicates the current folder.

You can also use absolute paths, which start from the root folder /:

cd /etc

This command works on Linux, macOS, WSL, and anywhere you have a UNIX environment
