DOS while "command" gets you a DOS window.
How is he running these programs? Thru a batch file? Perhaps somehow
using command rather than cmd? (It's been way too long since I messed
with DOS programs and batch files...)
And check the shortcut he's using, with shortcuts to DOS programs in
XP, you can right click, select Properties and then there's various
extra tabs relating to the DOS program environment, including "Screen"
where you can select Full-screen or Window.
I don't have Vista (switched to a Macbook instead) but there may be
options there similar to XP.
