How do I open a directory in Linux?

There are a few ways to open a directory in Linux. One way is to use the "cd" command. For example, if you wanted to open the "/home/user/Documents" directory, you would type "cd /home/user/Documents" into the terminal.

Another way to open a directory is to use a file manager. For example, if you are using the GNOME desktop environment, you can open the Nautilus file manager by clicking on the "Files" icon in the sidebar. Once Nautilus is open, you can navigate to the directory you want to open by clicking on the folders in the sidebar.
