Like when i call the dir command in C: i can only see the last few files (I have way to many in there) how would I go up to see what all the other stuff was?

you can't. Try this:

dir c:\windows | more

the "| more" does the trick nicely.

dir /p

the "/p" causes a pause after each screenful

One very nice trick I have learned, is to output the scroll to a text file.

For example...

dir c:\*.* > c:\windows\desktop\output.txt

creates a text file "output.txt" containing the list of all files on the root directory.
