Save screen scrollback history text in Byobu using a shortcut:

Shift + F7

    If the keyboard shortcuts are not working, try this:

    Ctrl + a, then enter the following command to save the pane's full text and not just the visible text:

    :capture-pane -S - -E -; save-buffer "$BYOBU_RUN_DIR/printscreen"

    Then you can view the captured text of the pane:

    $ vim $BYOBU_RUN_DIR/printscreen
