How to Run Turbo Pascal Full Screen mode on Windows 7

Now that's a program I've not worked with in a while ;-) I haven't used it since my early high school days in the 1990s. Turbo is a really old application that has been around for ages- unfortunately, being as such, it is only capable of developing 16-bit DOS applications, which has, for better or worse, gone the way of the dinosaur. In the x64-bit versions of Windows Vista and 7, all 16-bit native support has actually gone out the window in favor of 32-bit and 64-bit application development. This is why DosBox was invented- it is a true 16-bit DOS environment (much like and CMD.exe used to be) that is capable of running all the older DOS programs that are no longer compatible with Windows.
When you run Turbo from the DOSbox program, press ALT-ENTER and it will fullscreen whatever you're working with.
Hope this helps,
- Vern

Why billgates succesful in his business

Bill gates is both a programming genius and an excellent businessman. He formed Microsoft Corp. in 1965 and he and other visionaries like Joe Wozniac & Steve Jobs (Apple) realized that Intel's invention of the Microprocessor "chip" would make it possible to redude the "closet" size of the computers down drastically to the size of what we refer to as personal computers today.

Bill acquied the rights to the DOS (Disk Operating System) software which was installed on the early IBM and Compaq PC's starting in 1981. While more and more people were buying DOS (and Apple) machines in the 80's, Bill realized that DOS was a character based operating system No Icons, or graphics/pictures appeared on the monitor sceen - only letters and numbers - so he designed the Windows operating system to provide a Graphical User Interface (GUI) which, he realized, would be a lot more popular with users than DOS.

Windows releases 1 and 2 were not too popular - they were limited in what they could do. But Starting with Windows 3 and especially with Windows 95, the Windows operating System became a hugh success and made Bill a Billionaire.

By the way, if you want to see what it was like working with PC's in "DOS days", just click on Start, Run, and type in CMD and press enter. You will get a command box (frequently referred to as a dos box) and if you know DOS, you can create batch programs, program in Basic or Asembler language, use the Debug program (if you know how to) and live in the world of DOS like we had to in the 80's. One big difference -- In the eighties, we couldn't just key-in "Exit" forrowed by ENTER and get back to windows - Windows didn't exist!!

What is the first operating system

Hi! Initially there was no OS. Initially the PC works on batch processing systems. First OS-CP/M Launched:1974
 In 1974, Dr. Gary A. Kildall, while working for Intel Corporation, created CP/M as the first operating system for the new microprocessor.  By 1977, CP/M had become the most popular operating system (OS) in the fledgling microcomputer (PC) industry.  The largest Digital Research licensee of CP/M was a small company which had started life as Traf-0-Data, and is now known as Microsoft.  In 1981, Microsoft paid Seattle Software Works for an unauthorized clone of CP/M, and Microsoft licensed this clone to IBM which marketed it as PC-DOS on the first IBM PC in 1981, and Microsoft marketed it to all other PC OEMs as MS-DOS

If it says that your system can not run it in fullscreen mode, then it certainly can not be ran in fullscreen mode.
