Please tell me, how I can run cmd fullscreen.. If I make a shortcut of batch file and choose display options: Full screen, it still opens it in windowed mode.. On Windows XP I haven't this problem..

... guess you know I hav'nt got vista infront of me now :o)

1. Open an elevated-privilege Command Prompt window,
2. Right-click the Vista Command Prompt Title-bar and select Properties option menu,
3. In the Options tab, set the “Full Screen” option in “Display Options” section.

... execute a process with full admin rights by right-clicking on the executable or shortcut and choosing "Run as Administrator".

... to launch an elevated command prompt, simply [press] the Win (flag) key; type cmd; [press] Ctrl+Shift+Enter; and then hit Alt+C to confirm the elevation prompt.

... "source" @ Response number 8 (purple link) say's it is possible!
