Hi everyone,

Coming from Windows I was just wondering whether there's a short-cut to open terminal on a folder that I see on Nautilus. In windows we can right click while holding shift key and say "open command prompt (or power shell) here". I am looking for something similar.

Thank you.

install this extension :

sudo dnf install gnome-terminal-nautilus

This package provides a Nautilus extension that adds the 'Open in : Terminal' option to the right-click context menu in Nautilus.

Thanks a lot for the answer. Worked like a charm. I had to quit Nautilus and reopen it using nautilus -q && nautilus & as well in order for this to work; but now everything works as I wanted it :)
