How can I get the "Open in Terminal" Option when I right click in Raspbian OS ?

It opens the terminal in the current directory.

    This shall involve configuring the Openbox/LXDE desktop shipped with the Raspberry Pi. That would be complicated, and I'm not sure it's worth your effort. A simple workaround is to navigate to that directory with pcmanfm (the default file browser) and hit F4 or Tools menu > Open Current Folder in Terminal – user96931 Jun 3 '19 at 17:34
  • Your question is not clear enough. What are you trying to say? – Sohan Arafat Nov 10 '19 at 11:14

Openbox right-click menu is normally configured in a file called menu.xml, which is located either in ~/.config/openbox/ or somewhere under /usr/share/ if you don't have the former file.

Find out what the command syntax is for this "Open in Terminal" option on a system where you have it (I'd expect something like lxterminal --command=%1), and add this item in the menu of your RPi.
