  • Type Is Ė I/ to list the contents of the root directory. Press Enter to execute a shell command.
  • Type the command shown to list the contents of all directories contained by home directory. Scroll up. The command we just typed. Output of previous command will be shown above.
  • Scroll up. You can reach top of scrollbar and still canít see first command we typed; itís just barely out of range.
