Is it possible to expand the command line to the whole screen (to show several lines on the terminal) in Midnight Commander without exiting it? I mean I want to switch from two tabs to raw terminal to see what was the output of the last command (it could be several screens long). How can it be done?

Thank you.

P.S. I did read the entire help but wasn't able to find how to do it.

You can hide the Midnight Commander Window by pressing Ctrl+O. Press Ctrl+O again to return back to Midnight Commander.
