I received a new laptop at work (XP Pro) and every time I execute the command prompt, it is in full screen mode.
For example, I go to Start -> Run and within the "Open" text box I type "cmd" the entire screen is filled instead of just a window.
However, if I create a shortcut to the c:\\windws\system32\cmd.exe executable and then right click on "properties" on this icon, the "Display Options" within the "options" tab says "window" instead of "Full screen"
This is a nuisance since I have an automated script that changes IP address configuration on the laptop when it is in the internal network as opposed to the external network. When I launch this script, the output is in the command window and it is inconvenient to have this full screen instead of in a small window.
Does anyone know how I can adjust this?
It is probably something simple.
