hi. this is my first post.
I am trying to change to a directory of another user while I am logged in as the administrator. I open the terminal and type the following into the command line

cd ./Users/Almadroog(name of user)/

that works but the file that I am trying to access on the desktop of Almadroog and when I try to cd to it, it says permission denied.

Then when I try
sudo cd ./Users/Almadroog/Desktop

I am prompted for a password, then i type it in, then it no longer says permission denied but it does not actually change directories the furthest that I can get is to the
./Users/Almadroog
