Command Line Selection Not Working

When I try to use selection key combinations - such as Shift-Home, Shift-arrow key, etc. - to select existing text on a command line, the tab title changes from 'TCC Prompt' to 'Select TCC Prompt' but I can't actually select any text. I am able to select text using the mouse. Is there some setting that I need to change in the options? I have looked but haven't found anything that looks relevant.

I am running TCC 22.00.25 on a Dell XPS 15, Windows 10 with the Fall Creators Update installed, but I had the same problem with TCC 21 before the most recent Windows 10 update as well.

Thanks in advance.

This is in tcmd.exe, a tabbed window. The tab name changes when I try to select text, I just can't actually select the text.

I'm not able to find the "Extended text selection keys" option - is it in the Take Command or TCC options dialog?

Ahhh, "Windows console" as in cmd.exe, not a setting within Take Command. Run cmd.exe, right-click within the window, and click Properties to get to that option. That solved the problem, thank you, I would never have guessed to look there.
