1780. Modify Command Prompt

I still use the command prompt. Back to my IBM days with OS2. Can I modify the command prompt to add features? Like combining the cut and paste? Change font size?

Open command prompt, right button on title, Properties, Look at Options.

The easy to change options include changing the size of the cursor, adding buffer size of the history , and add or remove specific options like the QuickEdit mode, Insert Mode, and enabling Crtl+ key shortcuts like Ctrl+C for cutting and Ctrl+V to paste.

For those that really want to dig into features there is a New Console features link that explains all of the many options available. This is not for the faint hearted but I find that the Command Prompt does offer many functions that I use daily. An example is the IPCONFIG /ALL command that will list the details of your network connections. Give it a try.
