All this doesn't teach people how
to review the screen and if you are going to use the Command
prompt to any extent, you need to know how. I hope those who
know more about this will write more.
it appears to me that if you are
in object navigation mode, you can use the regular review
commands, numpad 7, 8, 9, move left by line, read current line
and move right by line, to review what is on the screen. 4, 5
and 6 are left one word, current word, right one word. 1, 2,
3, are the same but by character.
If you want to move to the top of
the navigator object, use shift 7. To move to the bottom, use
shift 9. In the command prompt, the entire screen is one
single navigator object. So shift 7 moves you to the top of
the screen and shift 9 moves you to the bottom.
To move to the beginning of a
line, use shift 1. To move to the end, use shift 3.
I believe these commands work
when expected in the DOS prompt but I've only tried them a
very few times. But all these methods of piping output to a
file, while useful at times, are really often ways to get
around basic knowledge of NVDA, which is useful in many
contexts, not just this one.

Adrian, I was typing about redirection and append commands at the
same time you wrote your message. You are correct about the
clipboard. You just use the pipe command with the word "clip"
after it, e.g.,
dir /? | clip
and the output goes straight to the clipboard for pasting
