This guide will show you how to clear the console screen in command line. This is useful when you have too much text that is being shown. Or if you are starting to work on something different and would like a clean slate to work with. Using this command saves you the time of closing out the command line window, then re-opening it.
In this example here we can see that there is a lot of text in my console.
In order to clear the screen we are going to use the
cls command. Simply type it into the command prompt, then hit enter.
Now that we have entered
cls in command line , you will see a clear console screen. You are now ready for a fresh start!
