# Where is my user's home folder in Ubuntu?

Recently I installed Ubuntu and Wine.

I can't see all folders in Ubuntu and tried to navigate to

/home/username/.wine/drive_c/windows/profiles/All Users/Application Data/


I couldn't find the /home/username/ folder. At the time of installation, I think I encrypted it.

Is there a way to get out of this? Only the public folder is visible under /home.

In Ubuntu (and other linuxes), your 'home' folder (generally know as $HOME) exists at the path /home/<your-username>/, and will, by default, contain a collection of folders, including one called Public. If you open the file manager at $HOME, then it will open in this folder. Once there, if you press Ctrl+L, you should find that the full location that you're currently viewing is shown in the location bar.
From a terminal, you can also enter echo \$HOME to find out the path.
It's also worth noting that on Linux, files/folders that start with a '.' are considered hidden, and so the .wine folder won't appear in the file manager's listing unless you show hidden files.
