Setting up VFP

Thanks in advance

when I do a dir from the command window I get the normal listing of files except its wrapping the information around.  How can i change the display in vfp display area.  I need to set up a smaller font in this area.  I know this is a small request but its bugging me.  

Thanks again
Jim Garry

Thanks,   I have already changed the font to "Small font" in the windows.  

Ive got a copy of fox 2.6 windows that it works fine on.  
More Info.
This problem realy shows up when I do a "display structure' to the screen or to the printer

RE: Setting up VFP

Change your main VFP screen font with the Fox menu option  Format > Font

To change the printer font add this to your programs enviroment setup area
PRINT FONT= "Arial",8 to your VFP Config file.
