The 80x25 seems to be a default - don't know it it can be changed or not but 80x25 works well for me.

You can change it within dosemu using the dos 'mode' command (perhaps add it to your autoexec.bat)

"mode co80,50" gets you colour, 80 columns, 50 rows.
               number of rows can be 25, 28, 43, or 50

"mode /?"      gets you help on other options

A lot of software makes assumptions and only uses half the screen, but there's a lot of software which works properly as well. I just don't feel right if my dos box is not 50 rows :-)


Thanks for the tip on mode Karl. I had forgotten how handy that was in the good old DOS days.

Do you know any way of changing the really ugly white on black background?

What does 'codepage' mean wrt mode? Are these fonts or characters like Cyrillic?
