I did find this answer here. However could not get it to work with my current setup :(

For example, when I start up iTerm currently it's been set to a specific direction (another developer did that) it's deep inside a folder inside of my Applications folder.

Basically I have cd .. 4 times in order to get to the Applications / Network / Users dir... then once I'm there I have to cd into my Users > leongaban > and finally Desktop

How would you accomplish this?

Hah I need to use Terminal more often.. found my older question here: How do I create a terminal shortcut to this path?

Also found out that I can just do:

cd ~
cd Desktop/
open .
