Does anyone know how to run a DOS program in a full window and lock it
so it is the only option?
We run our DOS version of Winnebago fullscreen, from Win95. Open a DOS
window, change to the proper directory for your program, type in the
name of the executable file, then look on the menu for a button with 4
arrows pointed out in compass fashion. When you put your mouse over
it, it should say "full screen." Click on that, and you have a
full-screen window. Now, make a shortcut on the desktop: using My
Computer, locate the executable file for the program, left click to
highlight the name of the file, then right click, and click on make
shortcut. If the shortcut doesn't appear on the desktop, just drag it
there with the mouse, and your window will open in full screen, just
as you want it. It will appear as if you were using DOS. To minimize
it (to use another program or Win9x), just hit the "windows" key.
