Video is ready, Click Here to View ×

Welcome to my Linux Commands for Beginners tutorial series, where I’ll show you how to use the Linux Command shell (specifically Bash) one command at a time. This series aims to take you from a beginner to an advanced user, one video at a time.

In this tutorial, I talk about how to navigate the Linux File System with the cd command, and I also talk about the ls command.


  1. Hi Jay, You are talking about the tree structure but you are not explaining how to get to my C or D drive. Can you tell me how I can go to a C drive or D drive to see my folders on those drives? I am using Fedora btw
    Thanks in advance and great video

  2. I recently moved from Windows to Ubuntu because I wanted to interact more with my OS, and your videos are helping me a lot!
    I'm very excited and happy for having so much good content for free.

    Thank you very much!

  3. It's always good to go back to the basics.  One comment though: you didn't include the a switch on ls – which allows you to see hidden files (files with a . in front of the name. This is useful when searching for a file like .bashrc or some such file. In any case, I really enjoyed the tutorial.
