Tips: How to customize the Command Prompt in Windows 7

Now, customizing the appearance of the Command Prompt in Windows 7 is much possible. Therefore, you can change its size, font and even colors. You can save the settings independently for each shortcut that launches the Command Prompt to make it appropriate for different tasks.

It is required to open the properties option of the Command Prompt for making changes. You can do this in three different ways.
•    Clicking the Control menu icon in a Command Prompt window and choosing Defaults from the Control menu lets you make changes that will not affect the current session but instead will affect all future sessions (except for those launched from a shortcut whose properties have been customized). These changes also affect future sessions in character-mode, MS-DOS-based applications that do not have a program-information file (PIF) and do not store their own settings.

•    Right-clicking on a shortcut for a Command Prompt provides the Properties option. Changes you make here affect all future Command Prompt sessions launched from that particular shortcut.
•    Clicking the Control menu icon in a Command Prompt window offers access to the Properties dialog box. (If Command Prompt is running in full-screen mode, press Alt+Enter to switch to window display.) Changes you make here affect the current session. When you leave the properties dialog box, you’ll be given the option of propagating your changes to the shortcut from which this session was launched. If you accept, all future sessions launched from that shortcut will also use the new settings.

What is tweaking the Edit Options?
From the options tab, we can have a variety of options that affect how the Command Prompt windows operates. We can enable or disable QuickMode. This option brings an enhanced and easier way to copy text from Command Prompt windows with mouse. However, we can still use the commands on the Control menu for copying and pasting text. At the same time, disabling the Insert Mode is also possible. Clearing the Insert Mode check box setting will allow you to overstrike characters instead. While using the first command, we can get an option to enable and disable the AutoComplete option. By default, the AutoComplete option will be enabled. However, we can still manage it.

New Micro battery, power packed for high performance

For a size of a few millimetres, the new micro-batteries are powerful enough to jump start a car battery and then quickly charge the cell phone. Researchers from the University of Illinois have developed the micro batteries which can be used to drive compact electronic devices and new applications for radio communications. The micro batteries are so good that they can even out power the super capacitors. The results were published in ‘Nature Communications’ in the April 16 issue. The micro batteries have energy and power and with the researchers tweaking the structure of the micro batteries a little bit, its use can be for wide range applications. The high performance of the micro battery is based on its 3-dimensional micro-structure. Based on the design of fast charging cathode by Professor Paul Braun’s group, researchers developed the matching anode and integrated it with the fast charging cathode at a micro-scale and made a complete battery with high performance. These batteries cou
