I guess you mean 80 column mode. In BASIC, use the "WIDTH 80" command.

There are lots of books available on MSX BASIC, the best way to learn (in my experience at least) is to have a list of all commands with an explanation (available in most books), and then look at other people's programs, modify them etc...

When i use WIDTH 80 i can't see the first 10 columns because they are too far to the left. How can i move the screen?

With SET ADJUST you can move the screen to a more readable setting:

SET ADJUST (X,Y)

Both X and Y are from -7 to 8 (0 = default middle)
