Oo, indeed, all these are very useful things, of which I haven't known! I
have always been comfortable with the terminal, the auto-complete, seeing
the complete path of my current location before the prompt sign, etc. But
sometimes I would need to navigate through the upper directories in the
Finder, or from the Preview, and it was quite frustrating that I was not
able to: Now, I've learned quite good things as an end of the day/evening
