This question already has an answer here:

I have enabled the Ubuntu bash command line feature that comes with Windows Developer Mode.

I cannot seem to be able to access any directories outside of a linux looking filesystem (ex. / has bin, usr, etc...) and cd / leaves me at that root folder. Perhaps there's a sandbox being used here.

How do I access local windows files, say in my Downloads or Desktop directory and use them with the Developer command line?
