How do I pause output for running:
Get-MailboxStatistics | Sort-Object TotalItemSize -Descending | ft DisplayName,@{label="TotalItemSize(MB)";expression={$_.TotalItemSize.Value.ToMB()}},ItemCount

I can't scroll up to the top.

Just pipe the more command into it. For instance:  

Get-MailboxStatistics | Sort-Object TotalItemSize -Descending | ft DisplayName,@{label="TotalItemSize(MB)";expression={$_.TotalItemSize.Value.ToMB()}},ItemCount | more 

Open in new window


That will slow it down to one screen at a time

Unfortunately this wont allow you to scroll but it will control the flow of the output so you can see all of it.

Also try exporting it to a txt or csv file.

Hi

What you need to do here is increase the buffer size of the window. Right click the PowerShell Icon in the top left and select Properties. Then go to the Layout tab and increase the Height of the Screen Buffer Size. I have mine set to 3000. This will allow you to scroll up. If 3000 is not enough for your task increase it.

Thanks
Mark
