Restore Win Dos widow from Maximise ?

  kimjhon 02:25 17 Jan 04


Have maximised the Windows Dos window. It now opens full screen. Can get back to d/top, of course but cant find a keyboard s/cut to restore from maximise.

I grow more moronic by the moment!

Thanks but fraid not . Nothing on the keyboard seems to work. Ctl/alt/del gets me out. But I need use Editpad at the same time.

Press both the ALT and the ENTER keys at the same time. You can use these keys repeatedly to switch back and forth between a DOS-window and full-screen DOS.

An alternative is to use the ALT + TAB key combination which allows you to select another program window.

Age has some advantages! But not many.
