How-To: Copy current directory path in Terminal

Spread the love

While working on multiple projects I always need to copy the current path of a directory in Terminal. I used to use the command pwd in the terminal that prints the current directory path in the terminal and then I have to select the path with the mouse to copy and paste the same where I needed.

I hate to use the mouse as it wastes a lot of time and to save time and copy the current path without selecting it with the mouse, I found this command and use it all the time.

pwd | pbcopy

This command will copy the current directory path to the clipboard and we can then press CMD+V (CTRL+V for Windows) to paste the path wherever needed.

I hope this will help someone save time and be more productive.+
