I wish to clear all the command-line stored in the Terminal. I'm using LL3.6, the LX Terminal version being 0.2.0.

In an attempt to clear the backlog of stored command-line, I opened Terminal, clicked on "Edit", then "Clear scrollback".
On reboot, I opened Terminal, but pressing the arrows keys reveals that the backlog of stored command-line was not deleted.

How do I go about this?

Linux-user since 2014. 64bit OS installed in Legacy mode on MBR (msdos/ext4) formatted SSDs (except the pi which uses a micro SDHC card):
2017 - Raspberry pi 3B (4cores) ~ Arm710@1.2GHz - LibreElec, used for upgrading our Samsung TV (excellent for the task)  
2012 - Lenovo G580 2689 (2cores; 4threads] ~ i3-3110M - LL3.8/Win8.1 dual-boot (LL working smoothly)
2011 - Samsung NP-N145 Plus (1core; 2threads) ~ Intel Atom N455@1.66GHz - Manjaro (tried LL3 series but lagged)
2008 - Asus X71Q (2cores) ~ Intel T3200@2.0GHz - LL4.4/Win8.1 dual-boot (LL working beautifully)
2007 - Dell Latitude D630 (2cores) ~ Intel T7100@1.8GHz - LL3.8/Win8.1 dual-boot (LL really zippy!) - my daily driver  :-)

I think you want to clear the history.

Code: [Select]
$ history -c

Sorry for seeming stupid and preferring Linux - I just don't know any better.
