Below are a couple of quick tips/shortcuts to help you navigate the command line a little easier next time.
Anytime you are entering a filename or file path, just click <TAB> and the shell will complete the path name for you.
If there are multiple files with the same letters that you have already entered, pressing <TAB> twice will list all the possibilities.
When you execute any command, that command is saved within a file in your home directory.
The history command functions in a couple of ways.
- It allows you to click the up or down arrows to scroll through your previously used commands. When the command that you want appears, just click enter to execute.
- You can enter the command 'history' into the Linux command line and the shell will present you with the entire list of commands executed for your current profile.
