I want to make a batch file that opens in fullscreen as if you press Alt-Enter. And i would like it without scrollbar too, but i haven't found anything on it.

I have heard you can use vbs to send button presses, but how would i do that?

Remember i use Windows 10

  • @PIMP_JUICE_IT I would like a batch file which opens in fullscreen (aka the Alt+Enter). Im currently searching for a way of removing the scrollbar. – 7h3w1z4rd Aug 2 '16 at 14:58
  • Your way did not work, i tried WshShell.SendKeys "%{ENTER}" and it didn't work. – 7h3w1z4rd Aug 2 '16 at 17:29

It looks like the sendkeys key to send would be F11 rather than Alt+Enter so below is an example logic batch script that open a CMD window, maximizes that window to full screen, and then runs some logic, etc.

I'm not certain there is a batch script solution available to make the command prompt scrollbar disappear but below is a method which will work on Windows 10 for making the command prompt (CMD) full screen with the scrollbar.

Example Batch Script


SET TempVBSFile=%temp%\~tmpSendKeysTemp.vbs
IF EXIST "%TempVBSFile%" DEL /F /Q "%TempVBSFile%"
ECHO Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell") >>"%TempVBSFile%"
ECHO Wscript.Sleep 900                                    >>"%TempVBSFile%"
ECHO WshShell.SendKeys "{F11}"                            >>"%TempVBSFile%
ECHO Wscript.Sleep 900                                    >>"%TempVBSFile%"

CSCRIPT //nologo "%TempVBSFile%"

:: Put whatever logic below for your script to run in the full screen CMD window
ECHO Logic is fun
ECHO Fun is Logic
ECHO Just logically fun

  • This worked :D I will make a new question on how to remove the scrollbar as i see the "fullscreen" part is done. – 7h3w1z4rd Aug 3 '16 at 15:37
