4.2.4 Command-line tricks in MC

  • Any cd command will change the directory shown on the selected screen.

  • Ctrl-Enter or Alt-Enter will copy a filename to the command line. Use this with the cp or mv command together with command-line editing.

  • Alt-Tab will show shell filename expansion choices.

  • One can specify the starting directory for both windows as arguments to MC; for example, mc /etc /root.

  • Esc + numberkey == Fn (i.e., Esc + `1' = F1, etc.; Esc + `0' = F10)

  • Esc-key == Alt-key (= Meta, M-); i.e., type Esc + `c' for Alt-C.
