An absolute path is a path to the location of the file from the home directory. As you are new to Linux, I will try to make it simple. Suppose you store a file in some directory. The absolute path would be the directories you will have to go to reach that file. To find the absolute path, open terminal and go to the directory where the file is located and run the following command:

$ pwd

This will print the absolute path.
