In windows 98 we used to change the dos memory from DOS command by editing the properties of DOS shell after typing command on the run windows

but in windows 2000 every thing is changed so who knows how we can edit it

Increas the DOS memory in Windows2000

Yes, everything has changed. Because Win9x was essentially a shell operating on top of DOS, you could a universal change to DOS memory settings.

In Win2K, DOS no longer exists. Instead, Win2K uses Virtual DOS machines (or VDMs). A VDM is created for each running DOS process. When a DOS program is installed under Win2K, a special shortcut file called a .pif file is created for that program. You make environment changes for the DOS program by editing the properties of the .pif file.

Changes that you can make include: memory settings, screen font to be used in the DOS window, whether to run in a full screen or only a window, etc. These settings apply only to the DOS program for which the .pif file was created. If you are running multiple DOS programs, you need to edit the .pif file for each.

Hope this answers your question.
