    How to Enable or Disable Scroll Forward in Console Window in Windows 10


    A console (or "terminal) is an application that provides I/O to character-mode applications.

    For example: Linux

    Starting with Windows 10 build 18298, when you open the properties page of any Console window, you will notice an additional Terminal tab containing several new settings for some experimental features.

    When Scroll Forward is enabled (default state), the Console can to scroll anywhere within the Consoles buffer, even below the most recent row of text displayed.

    When Scroll Forward is disabled, the Console will not allow scrolling below the last line output, similar to how most *NIX terminals work.

    This tutorial will show you how to enable or disable scroll forward in a console window (ex: command prompt, PowerShell, Linux) for your account in Windows 10.

    *note When you enable or disable Scroll Forward for a console window, it will only be applied to the specific console window shortcut that opened it.

    For example, command prompt opened via Win+X menu VS Run (Win+R) dialog. Each location would have its own settings.




    Here's How:

    1. Open a Linux console window you want to enable or disable scroll forward for.

    *note You could also just directly right click on the console window shortcut or file, click/tap on Properties, and go to step 3 below.

    2. Right click or press and hold on the title bar of the console window, and click/tap on Properties. (see screenshot below)

    3. Click/tap on the Terminal tab, check (disable) or uncheck (enable - default) Disable Scroll-Forward for what you want under the Terminal Scrolling settings, and click/tap on OK to apply. (see screenshot below)

    4. You can now close the console window if you like.


    That's it,

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

    Disable Action Center in Windows 7?

    Unfortunately that doesn't disable Action Center, all it does it cause Acution Center to bitch about the Security Center service not running.

    Action Center seems to be a different beast from Security Center...

    And telling it to not display any messages gets it out of the way, the same way disabling the icon in the suggestions above does, but Action Center is still enabled and running.
