Linux Tutorial Series – 16 – Command history and cursor movement

Here is the video version, if you prefer it:

Did you know you can use the Up/Down arrows on your keyboard to see previous commands you executed in the Linux shell? Did you know that you can use Left/Right arrows to move your cursor? (Shotts, 2019)⁠

If you did not, now you do. If you did, great for you!

Hope this helped.
