How To Size DOS Program Windows

I have just purchased a new Compaq Presario with Win 95 installed.  When I try to run a DOS program (which I have a lot of), the window is too small and does not fill up the entire screen, thereby making it very difficult to read.  This happens from the DOS prompt and in DOS programs.  How can I change this so the program will use all available screen space?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

If you want the program to be run full screen, you can hit alt-enter while you're in the program and it will put it to full-screen mode.  If you want the program to open like this as the default, open the folder containing the program icon, right click on it, go down to properties.  A DOS program will have a lot of tabs in this properties box.  Go to the one labeled Screen, in the Usage box, click "Full-Screen."

If you want it to be windowed, but a very big window, you should go to the Font tab and make the font larger.  For this to work, however, the "Full-Screen" should not be set, the Windowed button should be.
