Description

In the PowerShell ISE, suggest the ability to temporarily disable the automatic scrolling to the new line of output (without actually stopping new output from being collected). I would suggest using the "Scroll Lock" key as the keyboard shortcut for this option. This will save the user time because it will be feasible to easily inspect previously generated output without waiting for the command to complete.

In the console pane, perform Select All followed by Copy. Then. paste the data into a text editor such as Notepad. This will let you scroll through that "snapshot" of the output.
