I want to open corresponding folder in file explorer. I tried to get the command for that. For example, let's say my current terminal address is


Now, i want to open Documents in file explorer, if there is any way or command to do so.

Reverse(and other) question :- I was also wondering if there is any short-cut key for right-key -> open in terminal.

You can type

nautilus .

But I recommend

nautilus . 2>/dev/null & disown

so that you can continue to use the terminal and close it without auto-closing nautilus, and prevent any warnings printing in the terminal

. is the current working directory

You can also just open a terminal and type nautilus Documents from home or nautilus ~/Documents from anywhere
