Is there any way how to repeat last executed command (like up arrow does is cmd.exe) in Console2?

The manual does say: Windows (CR+LF) - If selected the copy operation will convert the carriage return using the Windows convention. I don't know what that actually means but may be it will help – Dave Sep 14 '12 at 12:39
Um... I use Console2, and the up arrow works... – SaintWacko Sep 14 '12 at 13:10
Yeah, I tried walkthough in this article:… and it sort of stopped working (probably). – Marek Osvald Sep 14 '12 at 13:50

[I stand corrected, as per comments, ctrl + works]

From the developers themselves (at least, their source code):

NOTE: Console is NOT a shell. Therefore, it does not implement shell features like...command history

Ha! Nevermind, i figured it out. All you have to do is press Ctrl+Up. Weird that the developers say the application does not support this function though. – Marek Osvald Sep 14 '12 at 12:46
Haha, well, to be fair the help file is usually the last thing I remember to update too. – EntropyWins Sep 14 '12 at 12:48
You make a help file?! I just assume everyone will know by magic :) – Dave Sep 14 '12 at 12:49
I make a help file because I forget the s**t I code sometimes. – EntropyWins Sep 14 '12 at 12:59
I just discovered that Shift + ↑ works as well. – Marek Osvald Sep 18 '12 at 9:49

You have to go to Settings -> Hotkeys and disable Use scroll lock for scrolling. This worked fine for me!

thx, save my time – slier Sep 18 '13 at 15:44
This fixed the case where arrow keys (both up/down and left/right) cause scrolling instead of keypresses being passed on to the actual interpreter. Thanks! – efdee Mar 3 '15 at 15:29

If it was working previously, and suddenly stopped, you may have hit the scroll lock key.

I have had this issue a couple of times now and I would have never figured out. Is the first time that I find a usage for the scroll lock key, even if it is annoying. – Igor Rodriguez Sep 22 '15 at 12:56

I had the same issue and none of the instructions above worked for me.

In my case noticed that in Settings -> Hotkeys UP and DOWN were assigned to "Scroll Buffer row up" and "Scroll Buffer row down", so I assigned something else to these Commands (ie: Crtl + UP, Crtl + DOWN) and the UP and DOWN keys started working again to navigate the history.

As a work around, in the Settings - Behavior screen under Copy and Paste you can select Copy on Select. I know not ideal but may be the closest you can get.
