How to see all the commands executed so far or the history of commands executed in the Linux terminal?

Published August 9, 2021

To see all the commands you have executed so far in the terminal as a list, you can use the history command in the Linux terminal.

# See all the commands executed
# so far in the Linux terminal
history
  • Running the above command will show the list of commands the user has executed till that point in time.

For example, the output of executing the above history command may look like this,

# OUTPUT

 9276  ls
 9277  mkdir hello-world
 9278  cd hello-world
 9279  ls -a
 9280  touch myfile.txt
 ..
 ..
 ..

See the execution of the above command live in repl.it.

That's all 😃!
