Question windows dosbox font size

if you open a dos box in win98 and prior it is "full size" with nt/xp (i'm not actually even sure if not only starting with xp, anyway) the dos box is set to double the size. now i don't mean the actual window, because i always use it full screen (alt+enter). i mean the font size bit. is there a command to make it "standard" ? i know it can be because when i use some older dos based stuff sometimes when i exit them it keeps that older and proper full size. it's the same as the alt+f9 command from xtree/ztree where it shrinks the font so you can se more on screen. but xp uses the smaller one by default. am i making myself clear enough ?

i tried different font settings and stuff in the properties of my dos box shortcut but nothing is like the older boxes.

Hold down the atl key and press enter.

You can also go into the properties of the shortcut and have it run at full screen.
