Right click on it and select properties. Click the screen tab. Select full screen. Click apply. Click OK.

Not in 2k or XP - unless you know how. All versions of 9x have a screen tab.

Another Microsoft inovation. It is in the manual under
Z. Unpublished appendix
    1. Removed options
         a. No screen tab in DOS properties dialog box
              1. We don't want people to use DOS but they keep finding ways around it.

Do you need or want the option, or just want to know how to get it? I had that problem on a 2k pro machine but needed it for other people who use a special purpose batch file that I wrote originally for W9x. With MS, you sometimes have to go through the back door to catch Billy Bob Gates with his pants down.

Right-click on the minimized Command Prompt and choose properties, then choose Full Screen under Options. ;D
