Open your .INI file in a text editor, for example:I've looked here in forum and searched help file, but didn't find anything about it. Is there an option to disable global hotkey Ctrl+Shift+T that moves Take Command from taskbar to system tray?
DOH! How did I miss that?!?Open your .INI file in a text editor, for example:
Search for a line beginning with TrayHotKey. If you find one, change the value after the equals sign to a forward slash; if not, add a line TrayHotKey=/ somewhere in the [TakeCommand] section. Then restart TakeCommand.Code:
I agree. Unfortunally this comment blog by someone on JPSoft's addressed the problem soon enough, but appears to have been ignored.It would be better to not set any global hotkey at all than to take over Ctrl+Shift+T, especially with no way in the UI to turn it off. This is a really poor default setting. Ctrl+Shift+T is an important key combination in every modern browser.
You can reassign it or disable it yourself. Edit the .INI file, and find (or create) a line beginning with TrayHotKey=Rex, any chance you could get this fixed so that TCMD isn't overriding a frequently used keyboard shortcut?
What does it use for TrayHotKey? ("What's New" still says "Ctrl-Shift-T".)
Apparently you've defined it yourself -- there is no default key combo in TCMD to create a new tab.When I press Ctrl-Shift-T, I get a new tab ... why? What key combo is supposed to give a new tab?
There's a peculiar interaction with the Win7 tray's hide/show/icon/notifications control. Even after TCMS has been closed, its icon remains in that control (with a defunct caption) and affects the behavior of future TCMDs. That caption is not updated in the control for quite a while. I have not started/closed TCMD several times and an old caption still appears there. Are you destroying the tray icon when TCMD is closed? I don't think it should remain in that control.Ctrl-Shift-Z works as expected with "Tray=Yes". But with "Tray=No", Ctrl-Shift-Z **hides** TCMD (it disappears without a taskbar icon). Is that WAD?
Neither Ctrl-Shift-T nor Ctrl-T is mentioned in my INI file ... or in any alias ... or in any global hotkey (my own server). But either of them opens a new tab in TCMD.
I renamed the key with TCMD not running. When I started TCMD Ctrl-T and Ctrl-Shift-T still caused a new tab to start.Take Command shortcut keys are stored in the registry, under (I think) HKCU\Software\JP Software\Take Command mm.nn\Settings\NormalLayout\Shortcuts. The key data is stored in a single binary item, not as friendly ASCII key names, and clearly isn't meant to be viewed or edited. But I think you could rename or delete the key while TC isn't running to reset all of your shortcut keys in one swell foop.
