How can I get DOSBox to launch fullscreen on Windows 7?

sandeep mangal May 31, 2013

Do I need to mount all the time to enter in full screen mode? In the past when I had XP installed all I needed to do is run tc.exe and it would start in full mode. This does not happen on Windows 7, so is there any method or solution? I would like to just click on tc.exe and enter full screeen mode by pressing Alt+Enter.

Thanks and Regards,

    I tried this on Vista and it worked so on Windows 7 it should work as well.
    Lunch command prompt and right click on top of the command prompt window.
    Select Properties and then click Layout, change screen buffer size with to 1500 and click on then double click on top of the command prompt windows and you should get full screen let me know if it worked

    Make changes in your "dosbox.conf" ,change "fullscreen=false" to "fullscreen=true" ,now dropbox will run in fullscreen mode


    Try Alt + Enter (i think itll not work in win 7)


    right click on where its written DOSBox on the window >properties>fonts>then change the window preview value (last size is 10 x 20 ) ,it'll increase the window size,Enjoy!!

    Edit the configuration file of DOSBox and change the option fullscreen=false to fullscreen=true.
    You should find the file named SDL in the main folder.
