First off, I will start out by saying that I’m a command-line Geek. I seldom, if ever, use the “Start Menu” to start an application, I have aliases defined for all of the applications (Word, Excel, Outlook, Winamp, Visual C++, etc. etc. etc. ) I use on a regular basis and I start them all almost exclusively from the command line. Also, there are many times when I want two (or sometimes even more) Take Command windows open because I find Alt-Tab (which I use habitually) much easier to do on a “regular” basis then clicking on a Take Command “tab”. (I need to add that in many cases Take Command tabs are adequate.) (You could also actually call me somewhat mouse-adverse, and I wouldn’t disagree very strongly.) Well, getting to the point, I am used to entering the command “Start TCmd” to start a new, separate, instance of Take Command, and that still works except that that single command now also starts a new, totally separate and standalone instance of TCC, which, while not a major problem I must admit, is quite annoying, and this seems to be a new (since I am not doing anything now I haven’t traditionally done in the past) behavior of Take Command. (Yes, it’s easy enough to shut it down, even without a mouse, but it’s still inconvenient.) And I truly don’t believe I am doing (or have done) anything differently than any previous version of Take Command. (TCC 12.10.66 Windows 7 [Version 6.1.7601]).
