Bring up old cards

I have over 2000 cards in my French Vocabulary deck. Anki does not seem to go back in time at all to review old cards. How can I get it to bring up old cards that have not been reviewed for months or even years.

There are several ways you can do that. For example, you can use the Forget command with the cards you want (which will reset the card history), or you can review ahead these cards
