MORE – Windows CMD Command

Display output one screen at a time. MORE can be used to run any executable command (or batch file) and pause the screen output one screen at a time. MORE can also be used to TYPE the contents of any file to the screen.

You can create an environment variable called %MORE% and use this to supply any of the above switches.

More will convert any TAB characters to spaces in the output.

When MORE is used without any redirection symbols it will display the percent complete e.g.

MORE /E myfile.txt
–More (17%) —

In PowerShell use | Out-Host -Paging in preference to MORE, it will start to yield results immediately through the PowerShell pipeline, without waiting first to collect all the incoming data.
