No fullscreen console in Windows Vista

Well, the title pretty much says it all, how can I get the Windows console (Command Prompt) into fullscreen mode in Windows Vista just like it was possible in all the older Windows versions?

To increase the size of Command Prompt window in Vista,

open a Command Prompt window, then right click on the windows title bar.

Select Properties and then click on Layout tab.

Increase the size of Width value of Screen Buffer Size.

To get a exact amount to fill the desktop length, divide the width of screen resolution by 8, assuming no change in default font size of 8x 12 (in Font tab).

Thus, the optimal width value for Screen Buffer Size for resolution of 800×600 is 100, 1024×768 is 128 and 1280×1024 is 160.
