When using the nslookup command in the windows terminal, will it keep track of everything i search for, or just the information pertaining to my most recent search?

i believe it will keep track of everything that was searched during that command line's session. If its a new session (i.e. a new command line prompt that you run 'nslookup' on), i dont think it will keep track of your previous searches.

Liem is right, it will only keep the history events that occurred within that instance of the command prompt session. But if you are curious about what commands you have run in general during that time-frame you can hit 'F7' and bring up a menu that shows every command entered during that time. But once you do 'cls' to clear the screen you will only be able to see past commands that were ran using that menu I spoke about previously.
