Bash: cd/home/myname/pictures: no such file or directory


I know that this question has been asked a number of times in the past, but I still can't find an answer. I typed in the following command in my terminal: cd/Home/Harold/Pictures (and I know all of these exist because I can see them) and I get the following response: Bash: cd/Home/Harold/Pictures: no such file or directory. Any ideas?

Add a space been the "cd" and the "/Home/Harold/Pictures".

Are you trying to change directory to /Home/Harold/Pictures? If so, there would be a space between "cd" and "/Home" so the command would be:
cd /Home/Harold/Pictures
