Move Around the File System

In the Terminal, you have to “move around” from time to time. The Terminal fixes you to a certain point of view whereby whatever you type affects the current directory (directory is a Windows/Unix way of saying “folder.”)

The command you’ll use to move around is cd. This documentation tells you what commands to type, so we won’t get too in depth with cd. Suffice it to say that cd means change directory. Anytime you use the cd command, you are changing the currently focused directory.
