Viewing all of ZOOMed screen in DOS

DOS is one of the applications that allows you to use the palmtop's ZOOM feature to get an enlarged view of the standard 80-character-x-25-line display. To zoom through the three different display sizes, press (Fn)+(ZOOM). The feature works both from the DOS prompt, as well as from within non-graphics DOS programs (i.e., text-based programs).

However, by zooming to one of the larger displays, you'll cut off from view part of the 80x25 display. (See Screen 1.)

To view whatever text is hidden, press (MENU) plus one of the arrow keys. For example, pressing (MENU)+(RightArrow) moves the window to the right, whereas pressing (MENU)+(UpArrow) moves the window up. (See Screen 2.)

If you ZOOM to the 40x15 display in DOS you may not be able to see everything in one screen.

By pressing (MENU)+(RightArrow) the hidden part of the display becomes visible.
