Generating SSH key pair file not found

Hi

I was following the guide here: https://docs.gitlab.com/ee/ssh/README.html

And got to the point where i need to copy the public SSH key but i get:

No such file or directory

I used git bash, and it says its saves it here:

Enter file in which to save the key (/c/Users/- - -/.ssh/id_rsa): test

After completing that i had:

Your identification has been saved in test.
Your public key has been saved in test.pub.

So i went to copy the public key using (as per the documentation guide):

cat ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub | clip

But this leads to no file found. I went to look in the .ssh folder and theres nothing in it.

I am very new to this as you can probably tell. Hope some one can give me some insight into my problem, thanks.
