I would change the ~/.bashrc enhancement to something like this:

if [[ "$CurrDir" == "$SystemDir" ]]
    cd /path/to/sensible-dir-name

Where $SystemDir is your System32 directory. Always remember how \ and / differ between Windows and Linux paths:

Suggests using:

sed -e 's#^J:##' -e 's#\\#/#g'

That said in your instance you could probably hard-code the path.

⇧ Which LTS version is supported? 18.04.1 or 18.04.2? both? How can you tell the version of Ubuntu on a system in a .sh (bash) script?  ⇩
