DOS Day 2006

OK, so it’s not really DOS day but I thought I would post this since it was something random I saw recently in a video by Scott Hanselman and it just made me smile.

Most people these days know to use the up and down keys in at the command prompt to get the recent commands they have issued but did you know that F7 gives you a pop up of the commands you’ve used?

How could I not have known that? Awesome.

Alt+F7 clears the cache and F9 allows you to enter the command line number ;)

[...] So if you haven’t played with it or are using the beta then go and grab it. Oh, and F7 still works in PowerShell [...]
