Can’t Scroll in Windows Subsystem for Linux

I don’t know when it started, but at some point in 2021 I was not able to scroll inside my linux terminal on Windows. I really don’t care why it started, but I do know the fix.

After banging my head on a wall, and living with it for a few months, I decided enough was enough.

Bring Back the Scroll

Right-click the header and click on Properties.

Click on the Layout tab.

Change the height value in Screen Buffer Size to 999.

Done. You’re welcome, I am glad we were able to put this phase of our life behind us.
