    Command line windows resizing

    Im programming in C++ and im trying to figure the syntax to open a command prompt and then switch it to full screen. So far i have

    Code:
     system("command");
    This brings up a command prompt but its brought up as window. in windos pressing ALT+ENTER switches to full screen, so i would like the syntax for the program to do this for me.

    Am i making sense?

    Thanks for the help-

    A new programmer

    You're missing a board search for "full screen" to see many examples of this being asked and answered before.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
