It is not important for anyone to know this.

Hmm. Just got a similar question on irc a while ago.
Cygwin doesn't use : or \. Use:
cd "/cygdrive/c/Documents and Settings/Ben/Desktop"
And, btw, your "newbie-friendly" comment shows that you apparently have
no idea what Cygwin is and possibly have no idea what Linux is all
about. The project is geared towards people who understand a UNIX(tm)
environment. If that isn't you, then it's hard to see why you're
dabbling with Ubuntu.
