  • Open the command prompt, and maximize the window (it is still not full screen).
  • Right click on the top of the window
  • Edit/ Properties .
  • In the Window Preview.
  • Instead of 8 x 12, select 16 x 12
  • In this way, the command prompt is full screen and the cursor will be displayed.


Note: do not select "Full Screen" in Properties> options> display options as the command prompt will be full screen but without the pointer.
