PyCharm Terminal Pressing Up and Down Keyboard Keys Doesn't Show Previous Commands


When in Terminal, I thought I have been able to press the up arrow on my keyboard and the previous command I typed would appear. Currently, this doesn't work. Do I have to enable something to have this functionality?

Possibly noteworthy: I am in a virtualenv at this time. However, even if I deactivate and press up or down, still doesn't work.

Hello Jarad! Could you please specify your OS?


Hi Anna, my OS is Windows 7 64-bit. This morning I noticed my computer had restarted (presumably due to an update) and the up and down arrows in the terminal are working. If I ever come across this again, I'll try rebooting to see if that fixes it first.
