Changing Directories

I'm not sure why but no matter what I try I can't change the directories into scifi

Hi! After:

cp m*.txt scifi/

Just type:

cd scifi/

The error is in using the cd command to a file as a destination, first, and not a directory in first place. The Change Directory command only works with directories as parameters.

I hope I have been helpful.

Looking better at the screenshot that you share, it seems that error begins in the scrolling between directories when you are in drama moving to ../../comedy:

To know where you are located remember to use the pwd command every time you get disoriented. This command is very helpful and useful.

Good luck!

Hi Diegogeuna,

Thank you so much for your help. I was stuck on that for almost half an
hour trying to figure out what I was doing wrong.
