Re: Increase size of Windows Console?

Do the following to change the size of console window:
  • In console window go to Control -> Properties to open the Properties window.
  • Now click on Layout tab and use the Height control in the Screen Buffer Size group to specify the number of lines to maintain in the buffer, which determines how much you can see of past commands and output when scrolling the window.
  • Use the Window Size group of controls to specify the screen size for the window. For example, specify a height of 50 to double your window height (the number of lines you can see at a time without scrolling).
