Do I have to type the full name of a directory to change into it every time? It seems like a lot of repeated, unnecessary typing.
It is unnecessary! Luckily, you can save a lot of time and keystrokes by typing enough of the directory name for it to know which to select and then just press
For example, say you type
ls and see that you have three directories available to
If you type in
myF and then press
tab, you’ll see that it autocompletes
myFolder! That comes in handy, especially with long file names.
