for 'powershell' i found this blog entry:

$MaximumHistoryCount = 1KB

if (!(Test-Path ~\PowerShell -PathType Container))
{   New-Item ~\PowerShell -ItemType Directory
}

function bye 
{   Get-History -Count 1KB |Export-CSV ~\PowerShell\history.csv
    exit
}

if (Test-path ~\PowerShell\History.csv)
{   Import-CSV ~\PowerShell\History.csv |Add-History
}

then you have to end the session with "bye" (instead of "exit" or closing the window via the "x" button).

the only thing which comes "close" to something like a "stored history" (but only for the current session) is to press F7.

No, the windows Command Prompt does not have automatic logging facilities.

And actually, the linux .bash_history is not only for root - it's for any bash user that doesn't explicitely disable it.

Besides F7, to print the command history of current session, run:

DOSKEY /history
