Change the Command Prompt Window
Need more lines in that Command Prompt window? You can change the window by typing in a Mode command. For example, if you need 50 lines in the window (as an example), type
mode con lines=50
and press Enter. You'll now have 50 lines available for use. If you'd like to change the window width, type (for example)
mode con cols=90
and press Enter.
When you close the window, the mode setting reverts to the default, so when you open the Command Prompt window again, it will use the default values.
