Basically, everything underneath /home/<YourUsername> is at your
disposal and you can save stuff there. Just pay attention to the
folders starting with a dot ( . ) because they normally refer to
application settings and ought to be left alone. Furthermore, here are
a few examples of folders:
/ -> The Root Directory, everything resides underneath this root.
/home/ -> Directories for user-data
/bin/ and many other folders containing "bin" -> executables are
stored or linked here, when you type a command in a shell (like the
Dos-Box in Windows), it searches these folders for programs.
/etc/ -> Contains system-wide configurations for services, and
administrative tools and such, and settigns that are the same for all
I hope that helps you, if not, don't hesitate to come back, and ask again!
Have a good day!
