  • 1/2 screen

    Hi-
    I'm lost with this one. I am running several programs compiled
    with PB 3.5. I installed XP: I was running Win 98SE. The result,
    which I've tried in Windows to change:

    I get a full screen display, but the program displays only in the
    top 1/2 of the screen (full width).

    I have another machine with XP that displays correctly. I've tried
    duplicating all of the Window settings with no change.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks, Dick

    Try
    MODE CON: COLS=80 LINES=25
    and then call your program.

    Best Regards,

    Arthur.

      Thanks for responding.

      I don't know how to use mode con. It won't take it in a .inf
      shortcut and doesn't work from a DOS Prompt.
      How do I use it?

          Use WIDTH 80,25 in your program startup code.
