If I run ping computername -t from within the Console - how do you gracefully terminate this so as to note loose any information currently displayed? Ctl + C doesn't work, which would work in the standard DOS Window. If I right click in the active console window and select cancel execution nothing happens. If I right click in the active console Window and select restart shell I loose the output to date.

I understand that I am not running a powershell command but am interested in how to solve this from within the shell - is it possible?

Thanks
