LXTerminal Commands that we talked about in this video:

 

ls
"list" displays the contents of the current directory - programs show up in blue, files are displayed in pink ls results.png
cd

"change directory" allows you to change the current directory or folder

cd ..
typing cd and then adding a space and two dots moves you back up a directory in the file structure
pwd
"print working directory" will display your current location on the system lxt-pwd only.png
sudo raspi-config
sudo means "run as super user" - the user "pi" does not have super-user privileges, and that's ok!  raspi-config will open the raspberry pi configuration menu in LXTerminal.
