But what I want is a multiple column display, that scrolls one screen at a time. Is that possible?
I don't understand what's wrong with the choices being given to you. 'ls | less' works just like 'dir /p'. For multiple columns, use
spacebar or pagedown - to scroll down one screen
pageup - to scroll up one screen
arrow keys - to move up and down the screen
'man less' for others.
