Create this file
/home/$USER/.inputrc with the following:
# ~/.inputrc - complements /etc/inputrc - global inputrc for libreadline # April 15, 2019 # See readline(3readline) and `info rluserman' for more information. $include /etc/inputrc # Insert key to togged overwrite-mode "\e[2~": overwrite-mode # April 22, 2019 AU Q&A: https://askubuntu.com/q/1135306/307523 # Make Shift-tab act like "cd ../" (move to parent directory) "\e[Z": "cd ../"
Save the file and open a new terminal.
Now you can use Shift+Tab to send
cd ../ to the terminal.
Also included in the settings you can press Insert key to toggle between character overwrite (replace) mode and insert mode.
