The amount of the screen that it uses isn't a function of the window size, but rather it's a function of the font size. If you use a bigger font, it takes up more space on the screen. In Windows, there's an experimental keyword that may help you. Try specifying the +resize_fonts keyword. If you don't like the way resize_fonts works, or if you're using the Unix version, you need to specify the font size specifically in your tn5250rc file with the font_80 and font_132 keywords. You'll probably have to experiment with different settings to get a font that you like. For example, in my FreeBSD (which is very much like Linux) machine I can type: xt5250 font_80=12x24 font_132=12x24 as400.example.com I can get a list of fonts by typing: xlsfonts In Windows, I'd have to specify the font. something like this might work: tn5250 font_80=Terminal-12x24 as400.example.com Experiment with it, you should eventually find something that you like.
