    ...set TCC to do filename completion on .PDF files? i.e. complete the filename and let it launch Acrobat PRO. I am sure that there must be a way to do this, but it has escaped me for years. Thanks.

    One way is to create an 'executable extension' by defining an environment variable, e.g.
    Code:
    set .pdf=acrord32.exe
    
    If you like the way this works, you can add it to your TCSTART.BTM file.

    Thanks!! That seems to do it I added 'set .pdf = "C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Acrobat DC\Acrobat\Acrobat.exe"' to my 4START.CMD file (shows how long I have been using the program) and now it works the way that I want. Thanks again!!!!

    You can complete any filename after a space on the command line.
