To resize a Command Prompt (CMD) window using Python, you can use the
pyautogui library, which provides cross-platform support for controlling the mouse and keyboard. Here’s an example code snippet that demonstrates how to resize a CMD window using Python:
import pyautogui import time def resize_cmd_window(width, height): """ Resize the CMD window using pyautogui. :param width: The desired width of the CMD window. :param height: The desired height of the CMD window. """ # Get the current position and size of the CMD window left, top, window_width, window_height = pyautogui.getwindowrect(pyautogui.getWindowsWithTitle("Command Prompt").title) # Calculate the new position and size based on the desired width and height new_left = left new_top = top new_width = left + width new_height = top + height # Move the mouse to the top-left corner of the CMD window pyautogui.moveTo(left, top) # Resize the CMD window pyautogui.dragTo(new_width, new_height, duration=1) # Example usage: width = 800 height = 600 # Delay for a few seconds to allow time to bring the CMD window to the foreground time.sleep(5) # Resize the CMD window resize_cmd_window(width, height)
In this example, we define the
resize_cmd_window function that takes two parameters:
width (the desired width of the CMD window) and
height (the desired height of the CMD window).
Inside the function, we use
pyautogui.getWindowsWithTitle to get a list of all windows with the title “Command Prompt”. We assume there is only one CMD window open, so we take the first element of the list. We then use
pyautogui.getwindowrect to get the position and size of the CMD window.
Next, we calculate the new position and size based on the desired width and height. We set
new_top to the current left and top values, and
new_height to the current left value plus the desired width, and the current top value plus the desired height, respectively.
To resize the CMD window, we use
pyautogui.moveTo to move the mouse cursor to the top-left corner of the CMD window. Then, we use
pyautogui.dragTo to drag the mouse cursor to the new width and height coordinates, effectively resizing the window.
In the example usage section, you can specify the desired
height values in pixels. Before resizing the CMD window, there is a delay of 5 seconds to allow time to bring the CMD window to the foreground. You can adjust this delay as needed.
Make sure you have the
pyautogui library installed, and the CMD window is open and visible on your screen. When you run the code, it will automatically resize the CMD window to the specified dimensions.
