Although there had been a lot of upgrades in Windows 7 than the previous version of Windows, it has some significant drawbacks like the one you are facing. Yes, it is a common problem with Windows 7 that it cannot run DOS applications in full screen mode. In earlier versions of Windows (like XP) it was a default characteristic that DOS programs run in full screen mode. If you want to run those applications in full mode in Windows 7, all you have to do is download a program which emulates a PC to run MSDOS application.

  • At first download DOSBOX from http://www.dosbox.com/download.php?main=1
  • Install it.
  • Now create a shortcut on your desktop by right clicking and providing the destination of the application. Like if you have installed DOSBOX in C:Program FilesDOSBox-0.74DOSBox.exe then type/copy paste it in the destination box.
  • Give a shortcut name and you are done.
  • Now, every time you want to run an MSDOS application, just double click the shortcut on the desktop and run the application.
  • To go to full screen, press Alt+Enter.
