Video is ready, Click Here to View ×

Welcome to my Linux Commands for Beginners tutorial series, where I’ll show you how to use the Linux Command shell (specifically Bash) one command at a time. This series aims to take you from a beginner to an advanced user, one video at a time.

In this tutorial, we’ll take a look at group management in Linux.


  1. Jay, thank you for your time and efforts in producing this series of videos. I am new to Linux and these videos have helped me to understand terminal commands that are very important in doing things in Linux. Coming from a windows environment it is a bit of a learning curve to get a handle on working from a terminal command line. So thank you very much.

  2. Hi, thanks for your video.
    I have a quick question here.
    When I excuted "sudo groupadd ac" and "sudo gpasswd -a myaccount ac", I just created a group called "ac" and added mysccount to "ac". But then I excuted another "groups" command and "ac" was not on the group list. Nevertheless if I excuted "cat /etc/group", myaccount was in "ac".
    Can you explain how can I add "ac" to the group list?

  3. Would like to say first off, thank you for taking the time to make educational videos. Getting halfway comfortable with linux because of them. I have a quick question. I know there is a command or a shortcut key that brings up all the commands you have been using, and you can actually just type in whatever number that is. Almost like a history of the commands you have used. If you could let me know what that command is I would forever be in your debt.
