Take control of Command

In Unix, you can up-arrow to almost any prior command and save yourself a lot of typing. In old DOS, it used to be F3. In Windows XP, it's gone. You have to either mark and paste commands again and again. It SUCKS.
How do you avoid this? Stop using command.com. Next time, use cmd instead. Most of the same functionality with the history feature.
