Pressing F7 in the Windows command prompt window displays a console window with the command history (list of previous commands). How do I change the size of this command history window?

For example, I might want to see more commands (increase height of this window) or see lengthier commands (increase width of this window). Please note that I am referring to the command history window, not the command prompt window.

You can change the size of this history list by clicking the command button in the upper left corner, selecting the Properties command and then changing the buffer size number on the Options tab under Command History.

I suggest jacking it up to 1K. – surfasb Jul 26 '11 at 13:41
