Windows "The new Windows PowerShell is coming. Actually, Microsoft has just launched a Community Technology Preview of Windows PowerShell version 3, although the final version 3 probably won’t ship until it comes out with Windows 8. It also will be available for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2. The CTP will install on those OSes."

You can adjust the window width by clicking the window icon on the top left corner and then click the Layout tab and then Window Size (as well as Buffer Size). For Window Size you have Width and Height. To save these settings permanently, create a shortcut of PowerShell to your desktop and right click and then Properties and again go to Layout. I set mine's width to 160 (on the shortcut) and when I maximize it fully maximizes, you just need to also need to tweak its height a bit. Try 160 by 58.

also, "mode con: cols=160 lines=3000"

Bonus points for using powershell for determining resolution and font size to calculate the number of columns (lines are automatically scrollbar'd, making it easy to just pick a large number)

Wow, that's smooth. Not. Why can't you just resize the window? (Ok, I actually know why, it's because the Windows console APi sucks balls)
