Few questions and suggestions

I'm evaluating Take Command, looks good, but there are a few things I'd like to see (didn't find them, please let me know if they are already in the product):

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8"><meta name="GENERATOR" content="BLOCKNOTE.NET"><title></title><style>BODY { FONT-FAMILY:Tahoma; FONT-SIZE:10pt } P { FONT-FAMILY:Tahoma; FONT-SIZE:10pt } DIV { FONT-FAMILY:Tahoma; FONT-SIZE:10pt } TD { FONT-FAMILY:Tahoma; FONT-SIZE:10pt } </style><basefont face="Tahoma" size="2"> 1. I'd like to be able to save sessions. For example, when I reopen Take Command after closing it I'd like to see all the tabs that were there previously, each located in the dir locations where I left them last time, with the same tab names and ideally the previous content in each tab would also be visible, although this might not be so important.


2. The visibility of the command input view and the folder/list views is not preserved between Take Command invocations in case these are hidden. This means that I have to manually hide them each time I invoke the app. Is there a way to completely turn off the visibility of these gui elements?


3. My installation does not contain the tcmdhere.btm and tcchere.btm. Is this a bug? If they are no longer shipped with the product, can I download them from somewhere?


4. Ctrl+C doesn't seem to work (while it works in cmd.exe). Is there a way to force this to work?

This is outside the scope of Take Command -- it would require changes to
Windows.

Take Command does allow you to have a standard set of startup tabs, but
once you've started using them Take Command has no way of knowing the
internal details.

The window state *is* saved between invocations (and can also be set
from the "View" menu). If it's not being saved for you then you
probably don't have write access to the Windows registry
(HKCU\Software\JP Software).

They are definitely shipped as part of the installer. Did you download
the installer from jpsoft.com, and did you do a standard installation?

Not reproducible here. (I'd have a few hundred thousand complaints if
this was broken!) What exactly are you doing?

Hello, Rex, I have some of the problems that coohler commented in his post:

I have to manually hide both views (folder&lists and command input) too every time I run TCC/LE. My user is administrator of the domain and of my computer.

TCC/LE v9.02.154 Windows Vista [Version 6.0.6001]

I downloaded TCC/LE v9.02.154 last week directly from jpsoft.com, and I neither see those files.
