By default, when you use help in PowerShell, the output is paged using more. If you install PSCX, it gives you the option of using less instead. By default, I'd rather use neither (I have a sufficiently large scrollback buffer on my console window). Get-Help doesn't page the output

How do I turn off paging of help in PowerShell? Without having to type more?

I don't see the behavior you describe. Get-Help on my (Windows 7 x86) system does not page the output. Running Get-Help alone gives me "Get-help" and "-?" display help on one page. "Help" displayes help on multiple pages. – William Jackson Apr 8 '11 at 13:33
You're right; I want to turn off paging for help. I've edited the question. – Roger Lipscombe Apr 8 '11 at 13:41

Alias help to get-help:

new-alias help get-help
