Re: Scrolling in the windows console

There is the other issue which has always plagued command prompt in that the standard paste gives you v in the command line and you have to bring down the menu and paste it in with that instead. I'd have thought these things should have been sorted out by microsoft, after all the dos emulation is just a shell.

I don't think this is an NVDA issue. I think a sighted person would need to do this as well. If the console is the same in its operation as the DOS prompt, and I haven't looked into the matter at all, but at a DOS prompt, there is a switch you can use that causes output to be displayed by screen/ For example, dir/p causes directory information to be displayed one screen at a time and you use page down to move to the next screen.

Note the slash after dir followed by p. I added that for those who are listening with speech and with punctuation off.

Sorry if this has been discussed before, but I couldn't find it in the

When I enter a command at the command prompt, if the output is very
long, only around 30 lines of it are available for review with the
review cursor.

I can activate the buttons to scroll the output with object navigation,
however this results in the text disappearing from the terminal object
with only the prompt remaining.

So is there a way to review all console output without having to
redirect it to a file?
