We can enable pagination for output of git commands on a one off or permanent basis depending on our needs.

One off

To enable paging on a one off basis, pass the -p or --paginate switch to the git command you are running:

git -p help -a
See 'git help <command>' to read about a specific subcommand
Main Porcelain Commands
add Add file contents to the index
am Apply a series of patches from a mailbox
archive Create an archive of files from a named tree
bisect Use binary search to find the commit that introduced a bug
branch List, create, or delete branches
bundle Move objects and refs by archive
checkout Switch branches or restore working tree files
cherry-pick Apply the changes introduced by some existing commits
citool Graphical alternative to git-commit
clean Remove untracked files from the working tree
clone Clone a repository into a new directory
commit Record changes to the repository
describe Give an object a human readable name based on an available ref
diff Show changes between commits, commit and working tree, etc
fetch Download objects and refs from another repository
format-patch Prepare patches for e-mail submission
gc Cleanup unnecessary files and optimize the local reposit

Here we passed the -p switch to the git help command, and the resulting output is paginated.

Permanent

To enable paging, update the pager.status configuration and set it to true:

git config --global pager.status true
WARNING

Note that if the -p or --paginate switch is passed to the command line, it will take precedence over the pager.status configuration setting.
