This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Your command is wrong, it should be cd ~/Documents. – Parto Jun 11 '14 at 4:54
Still showing command not found – user292457 Jun 11 '14 at 5:09
Which command have you used? – Parto Jun 11 '14 at 5:11
cd ~/Documents even cd ~/Desktop – user292457 Jun 11 '14 at 5:15

cd/Documents will not work. There should be a space after cd command and I think path you mentioned is incorrect, Document folder is in users home folder i.e. /home/{username}/Document in your case you can try

cd ~/Documents

there should be space between a command and its argument. and present directory should also be noted. for you this one will work

cd Documents

First of all read this to know how to use terminal.
