You do realize that the command line has scroll buttons at the right edge? Between setting the number of lines showing to suit your preference and scrolling you can see the whole command history.

Hey thanks yes I did but I usually only use the commandline for the command Its the first time I’ve had a good scroll through and look at the script for the macro
Thankyou again
