I'm using the Bash terminal for Windows and currently this is what I get when I type ls -a

<username@userPC>:/$ ls -a
. bin data home lib64 mnt root srv usr
.. boot dev init lost+found opt run sys var
acct cache etc lib media proc sbin tmp

I'm trying to get to my desktop and I don't know what path that is. I tried to go through each of these files and had no success.

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because this is about Windows Desktop files. – Fabby Dec 29 '18 at 18:09
