How do you get your recent vi command history to show up? I keep randomly getting like my previous 5 commands and can't figure out how I'm doing it. I think it has something to do with the shift key and another button. I know you can use the up and down arrows, but I know there's a way to see the recent commands.

The up and down arrow keys show you're last command

I want the recent commands.
