In brief: To change directories, use the cd (change directory) command.

These are a few useful commands to navigate through a directory structure in the context of a console/terminal/command line application:

cd \Superalgos Goes to the Superalgos folder, assuming it exists at the root of the current drive. If your Superalgos folder is not at the root of the drive, use the whole path instead. For example: cd \my-files\crypto-trading\Superalgos
