Linux : Terminal Navigations

In this post, I’m giving some keyboard shortcut using default shell bash and hoping it would be helpful for you.

Up/Down Arrow : Previously used commands in the current session on terminal.

Ctrl+A/Ctrl+a : Move the cursor to the beginning of the current line.

Ctrl+E/Ctrl+e : Move the cursor to the end of the current line.

Ctrl+U/Ctrl+u : Delete all the line from the start of the line to the current cursor position.

Ctrl+H/Ctrl+h : Same as backspace

Ctrl+K /Ctrl+k : Delete all the lines from current cursor position.

Ctrl+W/Ctrl+w :Deletes the word before the current cursor positions.

Ctrl+D/Ctrl+d : On a blank line is the same as the exit command. Otherwise, it deletes the character in front of the cursor.

Ctrl+C/Ctrl+c : Stop the current running command.

Ctrl+Shift+C/Ctrl+Shift+c : To copy

Ctrl+Shift+V/Ctrl+Shift+v / Shift+Insert : To paste.

Tab : command completion.
