Set individual cmdprompt windows sizes (num of rows/cols) for different batch scripts?

    When I start a DOS batch file *.bat procedure then a cmdprompt window opens with the default
    number of columns and rows.

    In old WinXP I could pause the batch script and change the number of columns/rows of this terminal/cmdprompt windowa as well as other parameters like font size.

    AND (this is important !) these changes apply ONLY FOR THE current batch script name.

    When I start another batch script then the default values are taken again (until I individualize them here again for this particular batch script). As far as I can see WinXP associated the actual batch script to the number of cols/rows by the title name of the cmdprompt (which can be changed by the "title" command inside the batch script.

    In Windows 7 this all does seem to work any more. All batch scripts work with the same cmdprompt window size.
    When I change it for ONE batch script then it applies for all others as well.

    Is there a workaround/gimmick to individualize it here as well?

    Maybe there is a command to set the num of cols/rows from inside the batch script ?
