    Overcoming the limitations of command windows



    By Fred Langa

    A command window is typically a bleak place to work in but you can adjust its size, position, color, font, and more. Plus: A Win8 upgrade apparently kills a CD/DVD drive, and the free DoNotLink service help prevents skewed search results.


    The full text of this column is posted at windowssecrets.com/langalist-plus/overcoming-the-limitations-of-command-windows/ (paid content, opens in a new window/tab).

    Columnists typically cannot reply to comments here, but do incorporate the best tips into future columns.

    I have mine resized and changed to a blue background which looks much more cheerful and less cramped.
