CMD full screen Answered

I'm new and need help with batching. My question: Is there a command or command line that will make a .bat file full screen with-out going through the properties/defaults for each computer you want it to run on? Thanks much!! Batches Unite!!!!!!!!

You could type:


This will start your batch file in full screen from your batch file then shut one of them.

Thanks a lot! I googled a bit and found that
start /?
will bring you more options (which may be helpfull if something other than /max is needed):
START "title" [/Dpath] [options] "command" [parameters]

title : Text for the CMD window title bar (required)
path : Starting directory
command : The command, batch file or executable program to run
parameters : The parameters passed to the command

/MIN : Minimized
/MAX : Maximized
/WAIT : Start application and wait for it to terminate
/LOW : Use IDLE priority class
/NORMAL : Use NORMAL priority class
/HIGH : Use HIGH priority class
/REALTIME : Use REALTIME priority class

/B : Start application without creating a new window. In this case
^C will be ignored - leaving ^Break as the only way to
interrupt the application
/I : Ignore any changes to the current environment.

Options for 16-bit WINDOWS programs only

/SEPARATE Start in separate memory space (more robust)
/SHARED Start in shared memory space (default)

Also, ALT+ENTER should make it full screen.
