Command History Window

Scroll Prev Top Next More



You can view the command history in a scrollable popup window, and select the command to re-execute or modify from those displayed in the window. The directory history window includes a toolbar with buttons for editing, deleting, and moving lines.


To activate the command history window press PgUp or PgDn at the command line. A popup window will appear, with the command you most recently executed marked with a highlight. (If you just finished re-executing a command from the history, then the next command in sequence will be highlighted.)


You can view a "filtered" history window by typing some characters on the command line, then pressing PgUp or PgDn. Only those commands matching the typed characters will be displayed in the window.


You can search for a specific command by entering a string (including wildcards or regular expressions) in the edit window on the title bar. TCC will remove non-matching lines from the window. See Popup Windows for details.
