    Hi yingxuan
    If you have a copy of MS DOS v5 or better
    (Make that later, everything was better)
    and type {command /? } for the following,
    md; ren; cd \;copy; xcopy; it will give you
    a start for DOS commands.
    An easier way is to get Vostok Commander,
    and for Linux, use Midnight Commander,
    ALT/F2 "mc"

    Each of those easily handles the tasks you
    specified, plus a lot more.

    I recall a file that gave DOS - LINUX equivalents
    for most of the simpler functions, finding it now
    is a tad convoluted.

    Im not too sure of websites that'll teach you Linux commands.

    have a look at FAQ #80 here at PF1.

    Otherwise, here's a quick run-down of what you have mentioned:
    Creating a directory:
    mkdir /home/yuingxuan/Downloads

    Renaming files is the same as moving them:
    mv oldfilename.txt newfilename.txt

    To return to root folder:
    cd /
    To return to your home folder:
    cd ~/

    rm filename
    to delete files.

    Hope this gets you started

    I have found some helpful sites for Linux commands:

    Newbie's Top Ten Commands - basic, but funny and informative.

    CLI for noobies - series of articles

    And of course, good old man pages. Whip open a console window and enter man command, although this might be information overload at this stage

    OK, found some more after a wee hunt through my bookmarks

    Linux Shortcuts and Commands - Section 5.5 File management.

    Welcome to How Do You Do That in Linux - Newbie Guides - Have a read of the "Common File and Directory Operations" section.
