Changing the Operating Mode of a Console
Use the CONTROL V,USE command to change the operating mode of a console.
The USE parameter on the CONSOLE statement in the CONSOLxx member of SYS1.PARMLIB controls the operating mode of a console at IPL. If the USE parameter is not coded and the console is a display console, the console’s operating mode is full-capability. Use the K V,USE command to change the operating mode for MCS consoles. You cannot change the operating mode for extended MCS consoles.
