Open the command prompt. Type

WMIC

and press enter. Now you will see the maximize button is enabled. Full screen command prompt

type exit, and you can use the command prompt full screen.

this will give you something closer to full screen

open a cmd window, right-click on cmd (in the upper right corner of the window),
select properties, then click Font Tab
select font style as "consolas " and font size as "28"..after apply .,ok

Well, if your name was Bob, sure. But it matches your name

It's funny you say that. But when I was a teenager, all my friends called me Bob. I guess because I was already pretty amaricanized then. Spent half of my time in the local America house and the German-American teenager club.
