help() function screen output

Using python 3.4 32 bit on windows 7 64 bit machine, and when, for example, type in something like the following in interpreter window:

It will populate the screen with one full screen of information, with a prompt of --more-- to hit enter, or something to continue displaying information, but, when, for example, hit enter key, it merely populates one more line of info, each time - under pythn 2.7, it seemed to render one full screen of info each time.

Is there rather a different keystroke should use to invoke that, or is this a python 3.4 feature/issue?
