Actually it's the Alps touchpad utility in a Dell laptop, but the new
tcmd beta version thinks it can be attached as a tab. It attaches as a
plain black screen, which AFAIK does no harm other than looking foolish.

The current licensed version does not see it as attachable.

Take Command v11 allows you to attach GUI apps to tab windows. However, the
app has to meet some basic criteria -- it has to be resizable, and it has to
only have one main window. I don't have a Dell laptop or the Alps touchpad
utility, but I suspect it doesn't meet those criteria.

The workaround is straightforward -- don't put GUI apps into tab windows if
they won't work there! :-)
