This makes the ‘find’ command with -maxdepth a great way to quickly search for something without having to go through all the subdirectories. For example, I have to search the folder named “node_modules” under all the directories of the current directory only: To search in the current directory only, set the -maxdepth value to 1. Overall, the ‘find’ command with -maxdepth is a powerful and versatile tool in the Linux operating system that can save you time when you need to quickly find something or make changes to a group of files or directories.
