What do you have actually? I assume you have installed a linux (which distribution)? Also probably you have graphical login. Depending on the type of the GUI you will have menu somewhere like terminal emulator, gnome-terminal, whatever-terminal.
You only need to click on that.

What are you running on your computer? Windows or Linux? I assume you want to practice some commands (like 'ls', 'cd', 'pwd' etc)... For that you should have access to a Linux or Unix system.

If you don't have a Linux/Unix system handy then see below:

Would this do the trick? http://www.webminal.org/

Haven't used it, but it came up at the top of my search for "practice terminal linux."

If you are a student, I understand that many universities make terminal access available for practice purposes.

Can build a virtual OpenSuse at SuseStudio.com

Can run a java based virtual linux at JPC.


Hello and Welcome to LQ by the way.

on windows 7 as per the icon under your name

start / run
and type in " cmd.exe"

but the Microsoft terminal is a piece of garbage

install MinGW
and use bash
