cmd.exe on x64 has removed support for
Enter or right-click+"Full screen". This should not mean that the OS itself can't go in to text mode, however.
Is there another application beside
cmd.exe that will try to switch to text mode?
Note: it was suggested that dosbox should switch to text mode but I believe it is not. When I go fullscreen with dosbox, I see on my other monitor in Display/Screen Resolution that the other screen's resolution is 640*480 (a well known graphics mode resolution). So I'm looking for a program that can actually switch to text mode.
edit: I have tried this program but couldn't yet get to text mode: :)
FAR manager: I tried alt+enter, didn't work. tried menu / commands / Video mode, it only maximized the window. However, checked in task manager, it didn't use
cmd.exe, it only used
command.comfrom a 32-bit Windows 8. Supposedly these
.coms have Alt+Enter still enabled (not sure about 8). It didn't start because 16-bit subsystem doesn't seem to be supported? (or so a dialog says)
