Windows Command Prompt History

Written by Dean Edis on .

I have just been reminded of a long-forgotten keyboard shortcut available when running a Windows Command Prompt (cmd.exe). If you press the function key 'F7' you will be presented with a selectable list of recently used commands, making navigating your command history much quicker and easier.

How did I ever forget that? It's very useful for those who use the command prompt regularly!
