How do I change directories in the terminal window of Ubuntu?

I have a .bin file saved on my desktop of Ubuntu and I need to make it so I can run it, the directions say to go to the directory the saved file is in using the terminal window….this is what my terminal window says now…

thomas@thomas-desktop:~$

What command do I enter to move it to the desktop where my saved bin file is located?

Thanks

    If you type ls (that is lower case LS) at the prompt it should show you the list of visible files in your home directory. Double check to see that the word Desktop has a capital D as all files in ubuntu (all *nix’s) are case sensitive. The command that you need to type should be:

    cd Desktop

    Typing ls again will show you the files on your desktop in the terminal.
    I am fairly new to Ubuntu myself and one thing that I have found is google is your friend.
