Making command prompt fullscreen easily

It is pretty easy to make your command prompt window fullscreen. With these few simple steps, the commandprompt will overtake your screen.
Making the command prompt full screen is really simple. In fact, it does not even require a post on it's own nor any codes, but I am doing it for the sake of organization.

There are two ways to make the command prompt fullscreen. The first (and most popular way) is to press alt (right or left alt, doesn't matter) and enter simultaneously. Please note the cmd window must be open at the time, or it will not work. The second way is to open a command prompt window. Upon opening the window, right click on the action bar above the window and select properties. A dialog box should appear on your screen above the command prompt. In the Display Options box, there are two options, Window and Full Screen. Click on full screen and then hit Ok. The console window should be full screen.

To exit fullscreen mode, simply press alt and enter simultaneously. In addition, any event that happens outside of the command prompt may cause it to go back to windowed mode.


How to open up the command prompt many ways

Opening up the commandprompt is alot simpler than you think, and there are many ways to do it. Opening the command prompt is as easy as 1, 2, 3!

1. The most common method to open the command prompt is to go click start (at the bottom of your screen in the task bar). After, click on "run...". Finally, type "cmd" into the box and press on the OK button. A black box, also known as the console will open.

2. Press on the windows button and the R key simultaneously. Then, type "cmd" in the textbox and hit enter.

3. Open up a new notepad document and type "command.com" (without the quotes) into the white space. Save it as a batch file (meaning, save the file as something.bat). Locate the file and double click on it.

4. Click on start. Then, proceed to click programs (or all programs) and then accessories. Under that list you should find the command prompt.


CMD code to display all files on your computer

So you have a computer full of files, and you would like to see a comprehensive list of files all at once? Well, you have to have a windows computer for this to work. Open up command prompt. To list all the folders that aren't hidden on your computer, type in TREE and press enter (this only works for the drive that you are currently on). Now, to save this list to your computer, all you have to do is type in "tree > nameoffile.txt" (without quotes). This will create a new file called nameoffile.txt in the directory your commandprompt is currently working in. This file contains the output that the TREE command would normally give you. To list all of the files along with folders, all you have to do is add /f to the end of your tree command. For example, to save all files and folder's names on your computer to testfile.txt, I would type "tree /f > nameoffile.txt" into the command prompt, ommitting quotes. Also, to make the output of the tree feature more computer more text file friendly, we could add the /a argument to the end of the command just like we did with /f. /a makes all output ASCII. To list all files on my computer in a ttext file named mytextfile.txt with ASCII characters, I would put "tree /a /f > mytextfile.txt" into the command prompt.
