Re: How do I get qbasic to occupy the entire computer screen

Thanks so much, I've wondered about this for years, cause I knew I used to do it. Knew it was something like ALT-E. This will make the typing and reading much easier.

How do I get qbasic to occupy the entire computer screen.

I have recently migrated to a Windows XP laptop (my wife's old laptop) since my Windows Vista computer died. I was able to just copy the old harddrive onto the XP machine.

I found the error! Dumb me! I had left the open statement inside a do loop so it was coming back to it and the close statement was outside all the loops, so it was right the file was already open.

New errors: next without for and file already open

I have used Qbasic for 15 years and written a ton of programs for scheduling, math, etc. Currently working on a combinatorics problem that was working really well up until yesterday. Suddenly, when attempting to run one of my programs, got a "next without for" error, but the "next" and "for" are cle...
