Can anyone give me a list of commands I can enter in the terminal?

I am trying to understand Ubuntu more and I want to know more commands. Can anyone give me a list of everyday use ones? I would be super happy to learn anything else about Ubuntu too! Thanks!

Using the following command in terminal (

info 2>/dev/null | grep --color=none "* [a-z]" | sort | less

you will get list of most useful commands. If you find one command interesting from that list, then you can use:

man command


info command

to get more information about that command.
