Without a restart-and-clear option, the shell window tends to grow without bound, becoming increasingly lethargic along the way.

I've have recurring student requests for this minor feature.

This is a different spin on issue6143. Here the suggestion is to combine the clear function with the restart option for a new menu option.

I am closing this one as a duplicate of #6143, but adding the Shell "restart and clear" suggestion.
