When you invoke Microsoft QuickBasic Version 4.50 with the high-resolution (QB /H) option and you compile a program using the Make EXE And Exit option, the screen remains in high-resolution mode when QuickBasic exits back to MS-DOS. The resolution can be returned to 25-line mode by typing the following:


The commands to enter QuickBasic using the high-resolution mode and the command to reset the resolution upon exit can be included in a batch file for convenience.

The batch file might look like the following:

  REM  *** Here is the STARTQB.BAT file ***
  QB /H

Versions 4.00 and 4.00b of Microsoft QuickBasic and the QBX.EXE environment provided with Microsoft Basic PDS Version 7.00 all return to 25-line mode upon exiting (fixlist7.00).
