First question here - please do let me know if I'm missing any necessary details / any structures and protocols that I may not be adhering to.
I've downloaded Ubuntu (version 18.04) on my Windows 10 Pro laptop, however, I can't quite figure out where my Downloads folder is. I'm attempting to install cuDNN, which effectively requires that I download files and then install them via my Ubuntu terminal.
From what I've seen in other answers / posts online, I should be able to execute the command
cd ~/Downloads to get there, but this generates the message "No such file or directory".
Hopefully the attached screenshots are helpful - do let me know if there's any additional screenshots that would help.
