But in Windows, I believe dir is used instead of those commands.

The unix commands you used weren't executed on your Windows computer, they were sent to the server and executed there.

I was trying to tell you dir is the equivalent of the Linux command you used for the mission.

If you thought that these commands were being executed on your computer, then you clearly did not understand the mission very well, so I hope that is not the case.

Open cmd.exe, cd to a folder, and type dir
Hit enter.
