How do I add a scroll bar to an MKS Toolkit shell window?

Use the MKS Toolkit stty command to set the number of rows higher than 25. You can also increase the number of columns from 80 to get a horizontal scroll bar.


    stty rows 100
    stty rows 100 columns 120

We do not recommend using stty from except for setting rows to 25, 43 or 50. It is safe to use from cmd.exe with other values for rows and columns.

On Windows 9x and ME, select a font other than auto. This will allow you to increase the number of rows without windows trying to compensate by decreasing the font size.

On more advanced Windows systems right click on the titlebar, select Properties and the Layout tab. Make the Screen Buffer Size larger than the Window Size and you will get scroll bars.
