Clear screen and scrollbar buffer

 
Hi,

Is there a hot key to clear screen and scrollbar buffer at the same time?
Or can provide a button to do these at all?

Thanks.

Re: Clear screen and scrollbar buffer

 
The Reset command or the Reset Terminal option of the Edit menu can do what you are requesting, but to ensure that your scroll buffer is deleted as well, you'll need to disable the "Push erased screen into Scroll Buffer" option found within the session properties. I've attached a photo for reference.

Please disable the option and you'll notice that the Reset Terminal option of the edit menu will clear the screen and erase the scroll buffer at the same time. You can then map the Reset terminal to a custom key in order to quickly erase everything.
