Another useful command is the man command. If you type man followed by another command, then the instructions for that command is displayed. The man command uses the more program that you used earlier and so you use the same keys to control this program. Try the following:

man man

man who

The output from the manual program often seems daunting to the beginner, but if you learn how to interpret it, it is very useful.
