I am trying to make a nice looking batch program. I have already figured out how to make the cmd fullscreen. But how do i remove the anoying ugly right side scrollbar?

Right click on the title bar, select properties, then in the layout tab make sure the window height matches the screen buffer height.

  • Yes this seems to be the only way... But I'm looking for a way to remember 999 lines backwards and still have no scrollbar. Is this possible?

    Doesn't work for me. I am on win 10 Mar 9, 2019 at 11:06

For me the fix was to follow mt025's recommendation and then change the CMD into legacy mode by ticking the "Use legacy console" box.


Close all console windows, start a new one and remove the legacy mode again. After another restart the scrollbar was finally gone for me. I hope this can also help others too!
