I don't think it supports an arbitrary number of lines, only those
supported by the VGA mode of your video card.  Try setting the cmd
window to 50 lines, and then I'd expect Alt-Enter to give you a
50-line full-screen display.

The above has nothing to do with Emacs at all, it's all basic Windows
trickery.
