My Journey from Luddite to Uber-Geek!
From the time I wrote my first line of ‘Liberty BASIC’ code I was hooked! I thought to myself, “This is freaking amazing! I can tell the computer to carry out any complicated function or set of instructions and it does exactly what I tell it to with blinding speed and absolute precision! I only need to tell it what to do COMPLETELY and CORRECTLY and the computer executes the commands I give it perfectly. It’s like having an absolute genius, albeit hyper O.C.D. robot slave!”

So here are 4 cool things to do with windows terminal to get you started on the right foot.
- Change title of cmd prompt window.
- Change colors
- Know what is in your current working directory
- Know how to navigate through your directories
- Extra – using keyboard shortcuts
It’s important to get used to using keyboard shortcuts since sometimes you may want to navigate quickly to a certain spot on the command line.
tab = completes typing if possible
up/down = cycles through available files and/or past commands
home = brings you to beginning of current line
end = brings you to the end of current line
ctrl + side arrows = jumps one word at a time along command line
