I have Microsoft Windows 10 version 1511 (OS Build 10586.679) operation system.

How can made CMD windows full-screen? (Same as what we did in Windows XP)

When I press Alt + Enter the prompt This system does not support fullscreen mode. shows in a message box.


My mean is FullScreen, not maximize.

I had view below this posts:

  1. https://superuser.com/questions
  2. https://superuser.com/questions
  3. https://superuser.com/questions

The answers under above posts are about Maximizing or Command Prompt Properties which the Display Option is not here.

Exactly I need FullScreen (Has no border and title bar)

So this tricky accepted answer is not fullScreen. I want running old programs (same as Blood2 DOS game) immediately in Windows 10 CMD without using VMWare or etc...


  • Some systems do not support full-screen console windows. Mine, for example, does and alt/enter works (RS3 build 16299, Radeon 6310 video card) – ddbug Nov 19 '17 at 22:56
  • How about if I installed Windows XP on my system? Is there any solution? – mgae2m Nov 19 '17 at 23:00
  • If you installed XP, you would be unsupported. Hope you don't :) – ddbug Nov 19 '17 at 23:04

There are two simple solutions that I know:

  • Update your windows 10 [Start > Settings > Update and Security]
  • If updating does not work then rollback it,

Click here to Rollback


  • After updating / Rolling Back Alt + Enter might work . – Kingdom Fantastico Feb 6 '18 at 6:56
