C# | How to change BufferHeight of the Console

Given the normal Console in C#, the task is to find the default value of Buffer Height and change it to something else.

Buffer Height refers to the current height of the buffer area of the console in rows.

Approach: This can be done using the BufferHeight property in the Console class of the System package in C#.
