The Screen tab displays the screen width, height, the number of lines for the scroll back buffer and the type of text highighting used.

Screen Width and Height

Simply enter the desired width and/or height for the screen and press the OK button. Similarly, clicking on the Up or Down arrows will also increase or decrease the width and/or height of the screen. The minimum allowable size for the screen is 60 characters across (width) by 5 lines down (height). The maximum screen size is dependent on the size of the desktop and the size of the fonts used to display text.

Alternatively, the WinOne® Command Prompt also allows the screen to be resized by dragging any of the borders of the WinOne® Command Prompt window to the desired size. The drive bar also contains a size box, located at the right hand side of the drive bar, which can be dragged to resize the WinOne® Command Prompt window to the desired size.

Scroll Back Buffer

The scroll back buffer stores any lines of output that may scroll out of view. Simply enter the desired number of lines for the scroll back buffer and press the OK button. By default the WinOne® Command Prompt stores 250 lines of output. The minimum scroll back buffer is 150 lines and the maximum is 2500 lines.

Text Selection

To select text on the main WinOne® Command Prompt window to copy to the clipboard, press and hold down the left mouse button, while draging it over the text to highlight. The hightlight displayed will be either Solid or Transparent, depending on the which Text Selection option is selected.

All modern video cards support transparency, however, if your video card does not support transparency then the Transparent highlight option will be greyed out and the only option allowed to be set will be the Solid highlight.
