Cant change directory to 'Desktop' in Pycharm terminal

In the Pycharm terminal, I am attempting to 'cd Desktop' and am getting an error that the directory does not exist. Well OF COURSE IT EXIST, I can access it through my computers command prompt. Is it something to do with the set up of Pycharm?

PyCharm terminal is usually started in your project root, while cmd is started in %USERPROFILE%

Try using absolute path to Desktop folder.
