SUMMARY: Force DOS applications running underneath Windows XP to display taking up the full-screen.
Instead of running DOS applications in Windows XP inside a window, if you need to fully concentrate on the application's results, you can run it in full-screen mode, hiding all taskbars and toolbars. To do so, just open a DOS application window and press ALT-ENTER.
Note that this tip also works for other versions of Windows including Windows 2000, Windows 98, Windows ME, and Windows 95.
