Hi,
I run TCC 11 maximized. I like the ability to use the CTRL Scroll Mouse button to resize the TCC Prompt screen to approx. 25 rows by approx. 80 columns. Using;

Code:
echo %_rows %_columns
shows me that I can get it to 25 rows by 83 columns, which is great for my nearly half-century old eyesight. I can get it to 6 by 80, but that's way too big!

Now, I have probably missed it in the help file, but how can I get the TCC Prompt screen to the noted size without having to use the CTRL Scroll Mouse method?

Thanks from Joe

You say TCC below, but I have a feeling you mean TCMD -- the tabbed version.
If you truly mean a stand-alone TCC window, the mode command works for me:

mode con lines=25 cols=80

If you mean TCMD, I think this may do what you want: Options / Configure
Take Command ... / Windows / then select the font name and size. With the
keyboard, it's Alt-O / C / Alt-W / Alt-F / (select) / Alt-S / (select) /
Enter / Enter.

You are correct, TCMD -- the tabbed version. The TCMD now opens to the 25 by 80 size.

I even located it in the help file;

Code:
Windows:
  
 The Font  button opens a standard Windows font dialog that lets you  select the  font, point size, and font style for Take  Command tab  windows.
Many thanks from Joe
