ELI5: Explain Like I'm 5


Terminal is an application that you can use on your computer to execute commands. Think of it like a little robot that takes your commands and tells your computer to do things. It is different than a regular program because you type your commands instead of clicking buttons. Terminal can do all sorts of different tasks like creating folders, copying files, installing programs, and running programs. It is a very powerful tool that lets you do a lot of cool things with your computer.
