    Can anyone shed some light on this.

    If I run "EDIT" in a DOS windows, it runs fine, but
    if I make the windows full screen, EDIT hangs.

    Any idea.

    I'm running XP Pro.

    Hanging DOS Box

    I don't know the solution to your problem, but I just started a DOS box, entered the Edit Command, input some text and made it full screen, I have a problem if I try to close from the X at top right, It says "Windows cannot close this program" but closes down OK using the File eXit option, I also run Win XP. I use Alt + Enter to swap between Full and Windowed.
    This is just to let you know what happens on my machine.
    Hope this helps.
