Is it possible to make consoles full screen?

I have Windows XP installed on my laptop and can't maximize the window of my 16bit application.

When I try Alt+Enter, it doesn't show as full-screen. I tried the options in its "Properties" tab, but that didn't work either.

I have another copy of this application installed on my PC with no problem of maximizing it to full-screen.

Try using DOSBox. The main problem is that from Windows 7 onwards, support for 16bit applications is reduced and hence the problems.
