How can I get a non 25x80 command window when I use the "at" command on XP?

    I use "at" like this:

    at 15:45 /interactive /every:M,T,W,Th,F cmd /k myjob.bat

    This works great except I get a default 25x80 cmd window. What I'd like is an 80x150 window, so I can see all the stuff going by when myjob.bat runs.

    I have a shortcut that already opens a cmd window of 80x150, but how do I get "at" to open it?

    Go to Start/Run, type in `cmd` then in the command
    window, type `help`.
    You`ll get a list of available commands.
    `Call` might be the one you need.

    Run CMD, right click top bar, Properties, Layout?

    Use "mode con lines=80 cols=150" in a batch file that runs the command
    you showed above.
