|Control the Number of Data Stacks (Windows 3.1/DOS)|
Category: Home > Tips and Tricks > Configuration Files > CONFIG.SYS
Support the dynamic use of data stacks to handle hardware interrupts.
Open the CONFIG.SYS file found in the root directory of your C: drive using Notepad or another text editor (not Microsoft Word or any word processor).
Add a new line with the text "stacks=xx" where 'xx' is the number of data stacks (for example stacks=9,256). Alternatively use "stackshigh=" command to cause the reserved memory to be taken out of the upper memory area instead.
These changes will take place on the next reboot.
