Is there a way to set up the running of a DOS program in Full Screen on a WindowsXp Professional computer? I still have several users who need to use DOS programs. In Windows 98 I can set up a shortcut and by adjusting the properties I can have the DOS program occupy the entire screen. In WindowsXp, no matter what combination of screen settings I adjust, I can only get a DOS program to occupy the upper half of the screen. I can make it so the DOS program is the only thing displaying on the screen (i.e. no part of Windows shows up), but something with the fonts used or something else causes the DOS program to be "scrunched" into the upper half of the display, leaving the bottom half just blank (with the background color of the DOS program's menu). Any ideas?
