I can guarantee you didn't use adb. You used fastboot

Open the platform tools folder. Rightclick anywhere inside the folder whilst holding shift key. You will find an option called "Open command window here"

Click on that and continue flashing the recovery. "fastboot flash recovery recovery.img"

1 you cannot cd to the directory you are already in
2 some files show extensions and some don't which probably means "hide extensions for known file types" is set. Turn this off in organisation

See point 2 above. I bet it's recovery.img.img but you MUST turn of the hide extensions setting in Windows to know for sure

Go to View-Options in Windows explorer and remove the tick on "Hide extensions for known file types".
