    terminal too small

    Whenever I run
    Code:
    ls /usr/bin
    , there are so many things in the folder that the terminal only displays the last 1/4 of them. Is there a way to change the terminal window settings so it can display a larger list? Thanks in advance.

    I'm using the Xfce Terminal Emulator on Xubuntu 11.10, if that's important.

    you can maximize the window if is is still too much there add | less you your command
    eg
