How can I get a list of commands I have entered in a command session?

A. You can press the up and down arrow keys when in a command session to display your old commands (same as the old DOSKEY software), however if you press the F7 key a list of all the commands entered will be displayed and you can then select the command and press enter to run it.

You can configure the history by right clicking on the title bar and selecting the Options tab. Update the "Command History" section.

Other keys you can use are as follows:

F2 Searchs for a character in the previous command and will display up to that character
F3 Recalls the last command issued
F8 Moves backwards through the command history
F9 Lets you return to a command but its number given by F7
