How can I switch my command window to full screen mode?

A. Normally your command prompt (cmd.exe) is displayed in a window, however it can be configured to be displayed "full screen"

  1. Right click on the title of the command window and select Properties
  2. Select the options tab. Click OK
  3. You have the option to either make the change just for the current session of for all future sessions. Make you choice and click OK

An alternative (and which allows you to switch from full screen to window) is to press Alt-Enter which toggles between window and full screen mode.
