    How to make command prompt full screen w/o ALT+ENTER?

    Is there anything I could type into the CMD line to make it go full screen? Thanks.

    If you right click on the title bar of the cmd window, go to properties then in Display options you should see Full Screen.

    Maybe getTimer() or TweenMax is the answer to your problem . . .

    I tried once to set a batch to run at fullscreen when ran, don't think it is possible unless the user sets the window to full screen.

    ...yes. on my own computer. i have someone who uses firefox often and he's pretty dumb so it's gonna be funny.

    but if its not possible, forget it. and i wanted to type it into a notepad and save that as batch, and not type it anywhere else.

    thanks for the help though.

    You want to know what you do.

    Take a screen shot of the desktop.

    Turn off the icons on the desktop.

    Turn off the start bar.

    Apply the screen shot as a background.

    Your friend will be clicking on the little icon for hours. Restart the computer and try again and again.

    How many normal users know u can hide icons. If you disabled explored they can't right click.

    Typing on an iPod hurts after a while.
