Can you access multi-word folder names in the unix shell? I try to use the cd command to enter a multi- name folder, i.e. "desktop bgs", but I don't know the proper systax for unix to enter such a folder.

Anybody know?

or you can use tab completion
by hitting tab once you are part of the way through or use a backslash before a weird character ...such as a space
eg.
cd Desktop\ Folder/
-Lister
