How do I stop the page from scrolling whenusing the command mode in Windows ME? I'm looking at IPconfig and never see the first page because it zooms by so fast.

:thumbsup: I tried setting lines to 50. It didn't happen. tried changing font size, it just changerd the size of the command window. Even used a full screen, but the fontt just got bigger.

There usd to be a command that would stop at page breaks but I've forgotten what it was.

This is one glitch in Windows 95/98 and Millennium command prompt. It has no scroll bar option like in Windows 2000/XP. The one thing you can do is pipe the output through the more switch :

ipconfig/all | more

the output will pause after each pagefull, press any key and next page will appear and so on...

Hope it works for you :thumbsup:
