How do I scroll in terminal without a mouse?

Scrolling the terminal without a mouse

Table of Contents

I'm sure this has been asked before, but anytime I try scrolling using the arrow, page up/down keys and/or those in combination with ctrl, shift, alt, etc. It just types some odd combination of symbols into the terminal. Something like {`3|, though I don't remember exactly.

For example, this makes it impossible to see for example anything above the letter S when I check for all installed applications.

I am very new to Linux and I only know some of the basics and am trying to learn it. I've googled but nothing really helped me there.

Thanks in advance!
