When I playing old DOS games with DOSBOX at full screen mode, Skype systray messages appears (Very large) inside the game screen at the right down part of the game screen, flickering wtihout disappearing, and I've no option beside change to window mode and back to full screen, to eliminate these Skype message.
How I prevent this nuisance?

This sounds like a problem you would end up having with every full screen game. Why not just close Skype before starting DOSBox?

The only thing I might suggest is changing the "output=" line in DOSBox.conf to one of the other settings.

I uses D-Fend Reloaded Dosbox fronted to run my games through their profiles or the profile of Norton Commander. Where is the equivalent option of D-Fend Reloaded to output= of DOSBox.conf in the profile editor?
