A command is nothing but an instruction typed by a user telling your computer to do something. For example, show me how much ram is installed in my system? Show me free disk space. Delete a file. Create a folder and so on. Commands are usually issued by typing them in at the command line (CLI) or command prompt. Once typed you need press the ENTER key, which passes them to the bash shell.
