Hi,
Is there a method to increase Console Scrollback (history)?
I'm using the ESP32 flavour.

Yes, I think so. I could not see any dynamic means in the code.

Thank you for the quick reply anyway. I am a Linux user and am spoiled by the long history. Also I am lazy :)
I've just started with Micropython and am having the time of my life!
I also saw that you are from a country I lived in for 33 years, so shoene Gruesse aus Wales.
