# Simple Postgres Commands I always forget

Here are some simple Postgres commands that I almost always forget

I am a simple man with simple needs. Here are the Postgres commands I use most often that I always forget so have written them here.

• Connecting in locally – `psql -d db_name`
• Listing databases – `\l`
• Listing tables – `\d`
• Listing schemas - `\dn`
• Connecting to a different table – `\c`
• Getting help with these `\` commands – `\?`
• Quitting – `\q`

I fully expect I will be the only reader of this post!
