# Question

hi guys
I really need help moving forward in my beginner’s stage in coding.
I am currently trying to use the cp command and I am stuck where it says navigate up one directory from drama/historical to drama/
any help?

Navigate required the `cd` command (cd stands for change directory), we can go up one directory with `..`:

``````cd ..
``````

yeah that’s the bit where I get confused. to navigate up one directory

I just showed you the command you need to use? Why is that confusing?

I got it now. thanks very much
