If you use Windows' "DOS box" (also called "Command Prompt") frequently, you may wish to have a window that has more than 25 to 50 lines. Even if your display isn't large enough to show more lines, you can still have a DOS box that can have much more virtual lines, so that you can scroll up to view the results of a long operation, for example.
- Open a DOS box as usual (for example, select "Programs | DOS box / Command Prompt" from the "Start menu"
- Right click on its title bar and select "Properties..."
- Change to the Layout tab
- Change the Height parameter under Screen Buffer Size group to the number of virtual lines you'd like to have in your DOS box.
- Click "OK"
- Select a way to save the recent changes, if you get a "Apply Properties to Shortcut" or similar prompt.
