Solution 12035: Scrolling on the Home Screen of the TI-83 Family, TI-84 Plus Family, or TI-Nspire™ Handheld in TI-84 Plus Mode When More than Eight Lines Have Been Entered.

How can I scroll the Home screen of the TI-83 family, TI-84 Plus family, or TI-Nspire handheld in TI-84 Plus mode when more than eight entries have been entered?

These units can display a maximum of seven lines, with a maximum of sixteen characters viewable per line, 99 per line total. If all the lines of the display are full, text will automatically scroll off the top of the display.

On the TI-83 family there is not a way to scroll back up and select a previously entered entry. However, pressing [2nd] followed by [ENTRY] repeatedly will paste previous entries at the bottom of the screen.

These calculators retain as many entries as possible in ENTRY, up to a capacity of 128 bytes.

The TI-84 Plus family and the TI-Nspire in TI-84 Plus mode will be able to scroll up using the directional keypad and select previous entries to paste on the entry line.

Please see the TI-83 family and TI-84 Plus family guidebooks for additional information.

Please Note: TI-Nspire users may refer to the TI-84 Plus family guidebook.
