Shift + PageUp and Shift + PageDownare the normal Ubuntu shortcut keys for scrolling up and down without the mouse in the terminal emulator. It doesn't seem to work in Windows Subsystem for Linux for me (Windows 10 1607, Lenovo Carbon X1 2015).

Has anyone figured out a workaround or know if this feature is on its way? I see some discussion here: https://github.com/Microsoft/BashOnWindows/issues/279

    Such features depend on the (Windows) terminal emulator. Having the Linux subsystem doesn't change the functionality of the emulator where it runs. – user589808 Jan 17 '17 at 15:09
  • Thanks! The Ctrl + Up and Ctrl + Down shortcut keys work on cmd, but don't on the bash.exe program that runs the Windows Subsystem for Linux. Realized they are documenting bugs and such at github.com/Microsoft/BashOnWindows. Whatever the bash.exe program is (is it a terminal emulator?), it doesn't support either Shift + Page Up or Ctrl + Up keyboard navigation shortcuts. Will ask over there! – kirschsubjudice Jan 17 '17 at 19:22
