Now if you want any help regarding any commands

If you want to change the Terminal look, go to Preferences (cmd + ,) and change it your own way. You can set a background image also 😛

To exit the terminal with exit command
1. Terminal -> Preferences -> Settings
2. Go to Shell
3. Under “When the shell exits”
4. Select close if the shell exited cleanly
