C# | How to change the CursorTop of the Console

Given the normal Console in C#, the task is to change the CursorTop of the Console.

Approach: This can be done using the CursorTop property in the Console class of the System package in C#. This changes the vertical position of the Cursor. Basically, it gets or sets the row position of the cursor within the buffer area.
