Under the Edit menu, please add a "Find" (ctrl-f) function to easily search all the text in the MS console window.

Personally I'd even like for it to start searching for matching strings as soon as I start typing without even pressing ctrl-f first)
(just like in Firefox, if you enable it in its settings)

...and as usual, F3 should then skip to the next match...

    Thanks for the suggestion.

    I agree that this could be useful. Currently the Windows-specific code doesn't get a lot of attention, though, so this is unlikely to happen without patches.
