    Right click on the ICON and select PROPERTIES. Click on the SCREEN TAB tom change it from WINDOW TO FULL SCREEN, then click on the PROGRAM, and CLICK ON THE CHANGE ICON Command.

    Thanks,

    As far as I know you can't do that in a DOS C++ program... Only thing you could do is probably change the screen resolution and thereby switching to fullscreen.

    But if I were you I'd simply make a link with the mentioned properties and have an installer copy the files to the appropriate locations.

    Sorry I was not able to response sooner, just got busy here, but I agree with Wichetael. You cannot do that in DOS apps, since the application itself is not even aware of the Window environment. The only way to do that is throught PIF

    Thanks,
