Setting the command window buffer size

For carrying out certain diagnostics such as viewing HTTP headers, it's useful to increase the buffer size of a Windows command window (the equivalent of a terminal on other operating systems). To open a command window and change its buffer size, proceed as follows:

  • click on the Start menu and choose Run;
  • right-click in the top left corner of the title bar and choose Properties;
  • select the Layout tab;
  • set the width and height in the Screen Buffer Size section to something nice and big.
