There is no "change to" in OS-9 as there is in Basic on a Coco3
(WIDTH40). In OS-9 you create a new OS-9 window that uses 40 or 32
characters or change /term either with xmode and then cobbler or os9gen
a revised system disk.
Assuming you are using a recent NitrOS-9 release, try the following.
xmode /term col=28 sty=1
Reboot the system and you should have a 40 column /term.
To help prevent artifact colors from making text illegible, you should
make sure the screen is white with black letters or black with white
letters. Use xmode to change fgc and bgc.
