    Full window display on Console Application

    During the execution of the console application, the window display is limited on its width that cannot be opened to its full screen. Can it be modified? My system is under Mirosoft Windows ver. 6.0.6. Tks.

    I don't think you can get a console window in full screen; when I'm trying to maximize a console program that I've written, it only covers about half of the screen, stretching almost from the top to the bottom of the screen, but not nearly over whole the width of the screen.

    However I think you can try using the function SetConsoleWindowInfo obtained by including windows.h, possibly along with the function GetLargestConsoleWindowSize.
    Come on, you can do it! b( ~_')

    Maximizing the Console Window (Completely)

    If you mean proper fullscreen, as in what Alt-Enter does then SetConsoleDisplayMode
