    Default Tip: Check history of commands in command prompt

    For command prompt lovers,no need to retype previous commands.



    Hit F7 to bring up the history of all previous commands used during an active command prompt session and scroll to get the selected previous command.

    Thanks

    The similar thing which is mentioned in above link of changing colors can be done by issuing one command called color from the prompt.

    Eg: color 02

    First hexadecimal digit 0 here corresponds to the background color which is black while the next one 2 is for foreground color (text of fonts) which is green.

    Do checkout various hex color codes by typing color/?

    The above example will give a black background with green fonts.

    It is quick too just by issuing a simple command to change whole command prompt window colors.

    I love command prompt and PowerShell.

    There is an easy way to do that. Right click on the cmd window frame > go to Properties, there you can change colors, fonts, layout, etc.
