Horizontal Scroll Bar in DOS Command Window

#1 Post by falcios » 22 Jul 2020 07:22

Hello,

The horizontal scroll bar in my DOS Command window has disappeared. What settings can I change to get it back?

Thanks in advance.

Open a cmd window, right-click the title bar, choose Defaults.
Select tab Layout, uncheck box "Wrap text output on resize".
Now you should be able to increase the screen buffer width independently of the window width to get the horizontal scrollbar back.
