Windows 7: Changed cmd to fullscreen and now cmd application dont show

Changed cmd to fullscreen and now cmd application dont show

Hello.

When changing the properties for cmd, i accidentally changed it to full screen which for some reason made windows crash and i had to reset my computer. After this when i try to run any cmd based application, it doesn't show up as a task that i can use. I see it in processes but not in tasks in task manager. I have no way to access it while its running and i did before this happened. I did find a way to run cmd and get to its properties BUT the option for windowed or full screen is not there at all. So i cant change it back.

Running 7 home premium 32bit.

If anyone has any ideas please let me know because i need to get it working agian

Also, if i just run cmd from the start menu it doesnt show.

Okay. I found that if i create a desktop short cut for cmd.exe or a bat file and run the short cut then they work. But running them from their original file they don't work. No idea what's going off.

System restart did not fix this.

*EDIT - FIXED!*

I went into regedit > HKEY_CURRENT_USER > Console > %SystemRoot%_system32_cmd.exe and there was one called 'FullScreen' and it was set to '1' so i changed its value to '0' and all was good

I think you can also fix this via Start , Accessories, right click on Command Prompt and select Properties then set Run to Normal Window?

As far as i know, that option just sets a start state for any program. It wouldn't touch the programs actual settings if i'm right.

Perhaps. The options are Normal, Maximized (full screen) and Minimized.

Just good you have it fixed.
