I use these bash keyboard shortcuts every day and they save me plenty of time, so I find them worth sharing. Even if you’re developing on Windows, you can have (similar) experience of the Linux bash using the Cygwin tool.
CTRL + R, then arrow up/down
Search in the history of bash commands. Press CTRL + R, type a couple of letters, and the most recent matching command jumps out of history. Press CTRL + R again, and you get older result matching your search string. Once you find your command, you hit either Enter to execute the command directly from reverse search, or any other key to keep it in the command line and be able to edit it (I usually use ESC or right/left arrow or the End key). I use this all the time to recall my previous mysql and ssh commands, or other ones which are too long to type. You can use any keyword inside the command when searching.
