How do I scroll in MS-DOS?
When in a Windows command or MS-DOS window information may scroll so fast it may be necessary to scroll up in the Window.
Note: There are no scroll bars in any version of MS-DOS or any version of Microsoft Windows when the command line window is full screen (no title bar is not showing). To change between a full screen and a window mode in early versions of Windows press the ALT + Enter shortcut key. New versions of Windows no longer support this shortcut key.
Listing files or command output one page at a time
If the reason you're wanting to scroll is because a command such is showing too much output, use one of the examples shown below to show any output one page at a time.
To list files in MS-DOS one page at a time use the 'pipe' ( | ) command in conjunction with the more statement, as shown in the examples below.
dir | more
attrib *.* | more
In addition, some commands, such as the dir command, also allow the /p command that displays one page at a time, as shown in the example below.
