Hi,

use the ls command to see what is really in there. You should probably also learn to use the pwd command to confirm where you are in the directory structure.

did you create the folder called " Folder1 " in the Downloads folder FIRST ?
Code:
mkdir Folder1

Hi:

Here's an example of mine. As you can see, Folder1 is in my list.

Code:
[linuxcat@localhost ~]$ cd Downloads
[linuxcat@localhost Downloads]$ ls
archlinux-2015.03.01-dual.iso
Blue and Gold.jpg
bootinfoscript

Folder1
Mageia-4.1-i586-DVD.iso
