Windows 7 command line problem
Windows 7 Command Line Problem?
My windows 7 command line doesn't give me a full list of my query. For instance if i do netstat -n -a
It doesn't give me a full list it just cuts it in half. example. HERE
I'm supposed to be able to scroll to see what preceeds

Pipe your results through the "more" tool or redirect it to a file and use an editor to access the data. The buffer for the command line interpreter window is limited, therefor the mentioned behavior might occur.

You can adjust the scrollback buffer size (though, it's still limited) by changing the properties of the prompt window.
Right-click title bar -> properties
Layout tab -> Screen Buffer Size -> Height
That will let you scroll back further. Piping to more is easier if you just want to page something to inspect it a page at a time.
