Search your history of commands

I just recently discovered that one can search a history of commands(in BASH) in  a few keystrokes , rather than the ancient way of pressing the up arrow till you see it or eventually doze off 🙂

Press Ctrl + R

Start typing the command u want to search for( it starts autocompleting)

Once you reach the right command -> Type Enter

Happy Searching 🙂
