There are two ways to navigate history.

1. Shell menu, Previous History and Next History, which show the hot keys on your system.  The hot keys can be customized with Options, Settings, Keys tab, history_prev, history_next.

This is easily found by looking through the menu or the first part of the IDLE doc (Help, IDLE Help).

2. Click on previous line and hit Return.  Should be somewhere in the IDLE Doc.

#2704 includes a proposal to change arrow key behavior.
