CD Documents not working


when I run the command cd Documents from C:\Windows\System32 I get the "The system cannot find the path specified." error. I'm not sure what to do about this. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hey Joseph Watts try typing cd \ and then dir. That should show you the file list on your hard drive. Then type cd Users and dir again to list the files in the Users folder. You should see your user name as a folder. From there, type cd [your user name] to get to your folder. Then you can type cd Documents to access that documents folder.
