MacOS is popular for coders or developers.
When we use it for developping, we usually use CUI instead of GUI.
In this case, we use Terminal in macOS.
But where is the Terminal ? How can we run it ?
So today I'll show you "Where is terminal in macOS ? How to run it ?".
Advantage to read
What is Terminal
Terminal is a pre-installed application in macOS.
It shows screen like below.
We operate it not with graphical interface, but with text interface.
It is just like the "black screen" in Windows.
In this Terminal, we don't need to change screen.
We can operate it only with text typing.
And we can do special task that we can't do with mouse device.
So it is useful for developers.
Where is the Terminal in macOS
Then where is the Terminal in macOS ?
It seems like application. So it might be in "Application" folder.
But we can't find it in the Application folder.
To tell the truth, it is not in "Application" folder.
It is in "Utilities" folder that is under the "Application" folder.
In the "Utilities" folder, there is "Terminal.app".
Once you double-click it, it runs Terminal.
If you will use it frequently, you can drag it to Dock area to start it quickly.
But I start command prompt with input
cmdCortana window in Windows.
Are there similar method in macOS ?
Start Terminal by keyboard
In macOS, it has similar search window like Cortana of Windows.
If you click magnifying glass on top-right of your screen, you can see search window (Spotlight Search).
Input "terminal" in search box, then it shows "terminal.app".
So you can click it to run the Terminal application.
You can also open this search box with
command + space.
But it is also fast to run it from Spotlight Search.
It needs keyboard input only.
It is in "utilities" folder under "applications".
In order to start it, you can click application icon.
You can also select "terminal.app" that you search with "terminal" in Spotlight Search window.
