    Could this restriction be lifted now that you support @consoleb?

    In the meantime, I'm using this 1-line alias as a workaround:
    But it seems that this would leak, because there doesn't seem to be any way to release the temporary buffer when done. (I tried @bfree and not surprisingly crashed the session.)

    Thanks!

    LIST /C works just fine in a tabbed window for me. What version of TC are
    you running?

    From the announce for Take Command 11.0 build 35:

    LIST - disabled the /C option when running in a TCMD tab window.

    so in tabbed windows, "list /c somefile" behaves like "list somefile".

    No; it's a Windows limitation. There's no way for TCMD to know that a
    console window has changed to a new console.

    Sorry, Rex, I'm lost. Isn't the point of /c to avoid cluttering the screen buffer? (It certainly is for me.) The alias in my original post does this AFAICT. If an alias can do it, can't a command do it?

    Also, can you address the memory leakage issue that I raised in the original post? (When @consoleb is used to make and use a temporary screen buffer, is that buffer deallocated? If not, isn't this a bug?)

    Thank you!
