    depends.
    to make the font bigger (if in a window) just click on the bottom and drag. if you want more lines type
    Code:
    mode con lines=50
    lo and behold... there it is.
    if you want to edit something with the ms-dos editor (which is suprisingly better than notepad in some ways, imho) type:
    Code:
    edit /h file

    if you want to do this within the program, a possible solution is by using the system() function.

    example: system(parameter); // parameter is command
    think only with code.
    write only with source.
