I am not a computer wiz, I just like the games. Please don't laugh if this question seems rediculous to you.

I am running Windows 2000 Pro on my Toughbook CF27. With this laptop, I am limited to a 800 x 600 screen. When I start DosBox, the window is only a small portion of my already limited screen. I can't seem to be able to maximize the DosBox window. Is there a way to do this?

Thank you for your time, effort, consideration and patience,

If you hit ALT-Enter, you should be able to get to fullscreen.

If you want to have it always start in fullscreen, open 'dosbox.conf' in notepad. Change the line 'fullscreen=false' to 'fullscreen=true'. Voila!

Yep, but that's best combined with Fullfixed=true.
