Does this answer your question? [Can I change directory to a Windows drive in Ubuntu Bash on WSL?]( Please search/research before asking. When asking, share your research. This saves everyone time and makes it easier to add details when asking. Also, please don't submit screenshots of a terminal- it's difficult to read and impossible for us to select or work with the information. Instead copy/paste and use [code fences](

Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
