Open Command Prompt In full Screen In Windows 7,8 and 8.1


Command prompt is also called disk operating system a.k.a DOS, I remembered when I used windows XP I frequently used command prompt to create folders and used it to run the java and c++ code thorug it.In windows XP I was able to view the command prompt in full screen by just hitting ALT+Enter but after releasing of windows 7 and other onward operating system they stop providing you the functionality to open the command prompt in full screen window so in today i would show three ways by using it you can view command prompt in full screen window,So lets see the those simple tricks.

Using WMIC Command

There are few commands are available that if we run those commands on CMD then that allow us to view command prompt to open in full screen mode and one of the command is the WMIC.

Open your command prompt and write WMIC and hit enter, see the below screen for more details.

Using Mode Command
As we did in the first method similar to it, we have another command which is Mode 800 to open up command prompt in full screen, so enter the command mode 800 in it and then hit enter, It would open up you command prompt in full screen window.

Changing the height and width of Command Prompt
