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 a raw terminal to see what was the output of the last command (it could be several screens long). How can it be done?

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.
