Thanks, David:

I had written as follows.

You wrote thus.

> As explained in the linked document provided, from any shell enter:
> set -Ux PAGER most

Your recommendation worked! So the options "-Ux" were required. Which I 
had not understood.

-U or --universal causes the specified shell variable to be given a 
universal scope. If this option is supplied, the variable will be shared 
between all the current users fish instances on the current computer, 
and will be preserved across restarts of the shell.
-x or --export causes the specified shell variable to be exported to 
child processes (making it an "environment variable")
