The .bash_history file in your Ubuntu home directory shows a list of all the commands execuited in the termainl. This docuemnt is great for copy/pasting recent commands. You must show hidden folders in the home directory. *In Ubuntu 12, this features keeps receting to default when you reopen a new home directory window. Use this command to perminantly show all files starting with "." (hidden)

gsettings set org.gnome.nautilus.preferences show-hidden-files true
