Display cropped command line information

When running an stsadm command I was getting lots of results returned so much so when I scrolled up to the top I couldn’t get to all the results. This is down to the Screen Buffer Size property on the window’s properties. You can change this by following the steps below:

  1. Open the command line window, if you are doing this in Windows Server 2008 then you may need to run this as an administrator.
  2. Click n the top level corner and selecting properties from the drop down list
  3. In the new window select the layout tab
  4. Increase the Screen Buffer Size limit (This took me a while to get the right figure but you could always bump it up run the command and lower again)
  5. Click ok
  6. Re-run your command
