Selecting line from popup history without executing

Is it possible to "echo" a line I select from the history popup window (bound to Page-Up by default) without executing it? Often I want to slightly modify the selected command before executing it but the popup window directly executes it.

When I go through history with the Up/Down cursor keys I can edit the line before pressing enter.

I just see it's possible to edit it in the popup window itself. Makes sense.

What happens when you select a line in the popup window and press ctrl-enter?
