Do you mean the number in the scrollback, not in the window?  Yes, but you
will need to re-compile to do so.  Look in src/gnuwin32/consolestructs.h.
It is 64K chars or 8K lines.  This is independent of the commands history,
so I don't see the problem: if you have lost some output, just scroll
back in the commands history and re-run the command to re-generate it.
