C# | How to change BufferWidth of the Console
  • Last Updated : 28 Jan, 2019

Given the normal Console in C#, the task is to find the default value of Buffer Width and change it to something else.

Buffer Width refers to the current width of the buffer area of the console in columns.

Approach: This can be done using the Buffer Width property in the Console class of the System package in C#.
