    The DOS screen is not part of the C++ language. There are no standard functions to manipulate the screen, in fact, it doesn't even need to be there.

    If you're using windows, right-click the command prompt title bar, goto properties, options, display options, and click full-screen. In the layout, u can choose your line options, etc.
