Is there a quick way to open command window from file explorer? There is a shortcut in Windows 8 like "Open commmand window here".

Yes indeed, just install nautilus-open-terminal:

sudo apt-get install nautilus-open-terminal

Then, log out and log back in and you'll have a new option when you right-click in any nautilus directory.

For some reason, I always have TWO entries... –  Wilf Jan 13 at 13:09
    
Only drawback to this nautilus extension is that it can not be set to open terminal like tilda (askubuntu.com/questions/354890/…). But apart from that it works great. –  Rafal Jan 13 at 13:10
    
That context menu is standard in xfce. –  user1281385 Jan 13 at 16:30

You should be able to open a terminal window from anywhere using Ctrl+Alt+t on the keyboard.

It doesn't opens a terminal from my current directory but main directory. –  hellzone Jan 13 at 13:34
    
@hellzone Thank you. Now, I understand! –  user3121023 Jan 13 at 14:18
    
I like Guake. It does a Quake-like drop down terminal using F12, but it opens at / and not at the current directory. –  TecBrat Jan 13 at 14:49
