Nano Editor helpful commands

Once you open the nano editor on a system I have some commands I always forget and never find in google once I need them. Here they are:

  • CTRL + v: jump to the next page
  • CTRL + y: jump to the previous page
  • CTRL + w + v: jump to the last page (especially helpful for MAC users because the alias ‘CTRL + Shift + ALT + 7’ does not work)
  • CTRL + k: store line in buffer (can be reinserted with CTRL + u)
  • CTRL + x: exit nano
