What happens when you type this command?

$ echo $HOME

The HOME variable is an environment variable that displays the path of the home directory. Here by typing echo $HOME, the terminal displays the path /home/ccuser as output.

You can customize the HOME variable if needed, but in most cases this is not necessary.
