    There are so many! It is very difficult for me to remember all the commands. On a folder I have every file (.txt) with a brief name saying what info it has, like "rsync", "usual commands", "csf parameters" and more. Is there any better way to do this? Would like to know your way :)

    Everything in one note, all organized in an ordered format.

    You start to remember stuff the more you type it out so after time, it feels natural.

    One note? Do you insert tables? Do you have any example?

    I type the commands always but there are dozens of commands. Even Eva saves them on his notes

    It's not every single command under the sun. It's just commands I use regularly or that I feel is important.

    Example (this can even be categorized) :

    #1. Title of what the command does
    Command goes here

    #2. Next title of what the command does
    Command goes here

    And so on.

    Well 90% of commands after practice and alot of use are recallable by memory. Ones i save in evernote are full guides or online how to and guides i find which i referenced or find useful. Evernote Clearly is very useful for this part. Then i can create summary guide notes which are based on these guides i find online. This allows me to search evernote more easily.
