Tips & Tricks:

  • CTRL + C to abort a command in Linux
  • Type ‘reset’ to clear the terminal just like you opened a new window
  • Type ‘clear’ to clear all text from a terminal
    • Ctrl + L which is a shortcut that works the same way as “clear” command
  • CTRL + D to close the Terminal window
  • History – type history in a terminal window to see a numbered list of the commands you have previously typed. I don’t know about you but I always just tapped the up arrow to get to the command I wanted. This way, just mouse scroll back through the list until you see the command you want and then simply type ! followed by the number in the list ie !6 or !132
    • If you have a large history – try searching – Ctrl + R to invoke “reverse-i-search.” Type a letter – like s – and you’ll get a match for the most recent command in your history that starts with s. Keep typing to narrow your match. When you hit the jackpot, press Enter to execute the suggested command. Each press of Ctrl+R will cycle through other commands that might match.
  • Ctrl + Arrow Keys (left or right) – to jump between segments of a command
  • Ctrl + K – to delete everything after the cursor location
  • Ctrl + U – to delete everything before the cursor location
