Selecting Previous Commands

by Aug 5, 2009

In our last tip, you learned that F7 opens a dialog with your command history. To select a command, you had to use the arrow keys to move to the desired command, then press ENTER. There is a hidden alternative, though. Each command in your dialog has a number. To run a command by its number, press F7 to open the dialog and then press F9 to open another dialog that allows you to enter the number. Amazing how many hidden dialogs there are in the text based console.
