Viewing and changing video setting for MS Dos

qa-featured

Hello William,

Its possible to modify/change the video or display setting using MS-DOS command application

The commands that I am going to tell you are compatible with Microsoft Operating Systems listed below:

All Versions of MS-DOS; Windows 95; Windows 98; Windows NT; Windows 2000; Windows XP; Windows 7

Display mode:

MODE [display-adapter][,n]
MODE CON[:] [COLS=c] [LINES=n]

Examples:

MODE COM1:9600,N,8,1,P

Set the communications port COM1 to 9600 Baud, making sure that no parity, eight databits, one Stop Bit, and with XON/XOFF. For all user ofl Windows 95, Windows 98, or Windows NT ,its highly suggested not to configure the communication ports in this way.It needs to be configured according to the operating system.
MODE CON: COLS=Eighty (80) LINES= Fifty (50)
The output display setting needs to be modified for directory structure in DOS to eighty columns.
When there is any inaccuracy Invalid parameter:
X should be in the invalid columns,which are  specified for invalid setting.

MODE

Typing mode would only provide the current/present mode settings for all the ports as shown below.
