err....... is there any command line in Dos to make it full screen, so that i can put it into a system(" ") line in my c++ console program? Thanks in advance.

No, you have to simulate a few keystrokes with the Windows API function keybd_event. IIRC:

keybd_event ( VK_MENU, 0, 0, 0 ); 
keybd_event ( VK_RETURN, 0, 0, 0 ); 
keybd_event ( VK_RETURN, 0, KEYEVE­NTF_KEYUP, 0 ); 
keybd_event ( VK_MENU, 0, KEYEVENT­F_KEYUP, 0 );

This works with Dev-C++ but not with VC++ 6.0 (I think it is a compiler bug)

HWND hWnd = GetConsoleWindow();
ShowWindow(hWnd,SW_SHOWMAXIMIZED);

Dev-C++ has a built in function in project options i believe
