    Since upgrading to Windows 10, my TCC AliasExpand and VariableExpand keys (Ctrl-F and F11) do not work. Ctrl-F brings up a Find dialog box which is owned by the Conhost process and F11 makes a detached TCC window full screen. I can move those functions to other keys using, e.g., OPTION //ALIASEXPAND=CTRL-G, but I'd really prefer to use the default key assignments.

    Alt-space, P to open the Properties dialog. Select the 'Options' tab and turn on the 'Use legacy console' tick box. You may have to restart for the change to take effect.

    I wonder whether the installer could check for Windows 10+, and automatically create the relevant registry entry?

    It could, though I'm reluctant to override Windows default values as that creates a whole new canister of annelids.
