<Below this line, describe in what way does your code behave incorrectly? Include ALL error messages.>I am navigating into this folder with the template that the instructions provide: cd …/…/action/
When I type cd workplace/movies/action/, it throws this error:
Use the change directory command to navigate up two directories and then navigate to the action/ directory.

<Below this line, add a screenshot of your whole web browser so that we can see what you see.>
I don’t understand what I’m doing wrong, and I’d love to know what’s happening!

Hi Taashi,

The exercise is expecting you to use

cd ../../action/

Each .. means “navigate up one directory”.

Thank you so much!
I finally understood what they meant:)
