revised (SOLVED) How I get the current working directory with inverted slash?
fixed attribution, remove usage of the split+glob operator which is not needed here (and potentially harmful). Remove usage of echo.

revised Why doesn't 'sudo bash && cd desktop' cd in to the desktop folder?
No need to run bash to interpret that simple command line. && to avoid running bash if you can't cd in the directory. exec as some sh implementations (including bash) don't save a process here and we don't need the sh to keep running here. No reason to use weak quotes here.

better use the glob qualifier where available rather than change the behaviour of the shell globally.
