What did I do to lose scrolling?

Several weeks ago, if I did a command that exceeded screen height, I could scroll back to (and prior to) my entry. I've set something incorrectly, and no longer can do that. I believe there was a scroll bar on the right of the window, but old age may be getting me. How do I correct my error ... or is my error one of mis-remembering?
I would guess that your screen buffer is set to the same height as the console window. Press Alt-Space, P to open the properties dialog; select the "Layout" tab; and check the screen buffer size. I usually set the height to a round 1000 lines.
Thanks Charles. It was width, not height, but somehow I had the buffer and size the same. I thought I'd checked that before; I also am used to height buffer many screens high.
