Command History not showing on up arrow button

I've searched for this on the forums, but can't find an answer.

If I have a TCC Prompt tab open, and I type in a command such as: ffind /t"correctkey" /v /s *.txt
...I then get the results from the ffind command. But when I then hit my up arrow to cycle through the previous commands in the command history, I just get a beep, and nothing shows up.

I very much want to use the up arrow and down arrows to cycle through my command history, but nothing shows and all I get is an annoying beep.

Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

I don't think the history mechanism can be turned off. The only ways I can think of to render <Up> useless would be with a "NormalKey=Up" directive in TCMD.INI (and that seems unlikely) or the environment setting HISTORYEXCLUDE=* (and that seems unlikely).

I wonder how the directive HistMin=8192 got into the .INI file? 8192 characters was the upper limit of an expanded command line several build ago. It wasn't made the default, was it?
No. (And 8192 was the upper limit of an expanded command line about 10 years ago.)

I suspect the OP added it thinking it related to the size of the history list, rather than the minimum length of the command line to save.
