This question already has an answer here:

Are there any shortcuts to launch a terminal in the currently active directory in the GUI? For example say I am browsing the directory cd ~/Projects/A/B/C/D/ED on GUI. I wish to open a terminal with the current directory active at that location without opening a terminal and cd ing into it? Are there any shortcuts or methods to do so?

Yeah, you can start the terminal by right-clicking at empty space in file manager and selecting the option there.

  • Right clicking doesnt give an option to open a terminal – Aswin P J Apr 13 '16 at 15:34
  • Ok. What is your desktop environment? In Xfce there is such option. – Alexiy Apr 13 '16 at 15:37

  • Probably it's the file manager's fault. Try installing and using "Thunar" file manager. – Alexiy Apr 13 '16 at 15:47
