This method allows you to set a shortcut in the terminal for something you normally type out. For example, a long cd directory path that you normally need to, or a script you need to run that also requires input of a long directory.

To do this, edit ~/.bashrc, and add shortcuts on the bottom. The syntax is:

alias the_thing_you_type='the thing that gets done'

For example,

alias projects='cd /media/smirnovm/ssd2/Users/smirnovm'
