What do you mean by history? When you scroll you will see previous commands and output.

By history I mean that I see previous commands and output. Excuse my pithiness.

Didn't work. But of course, I forgot that the problem is in the course, I am using their Terminal window (which is virtual), and not my own. When I go in later and use my own, I will try it. I honestly forget how I have gone up and down in the past. I am fairly new to Command Line. But recently I have started to compile a whole bunch of information regarding getting around in Command Line. I will include this. Thanks Philip!
