OPTION dialog for transient or hidden sessions

How do I use the OPTION dialog for a transient TCC session, which runs in a
hidden window, whenever I log in as a user (from a shortcut file in
%allusersprofile\start menu\programs\startup)? It is the session which
starts SHRALIAS and loads all global tables. It uses a unique .INI file,
specified in its shortcut file. The file already contains the directive
History=131071, but instead I get only 10240. I can change it by temporarily
killing SHRALIAS and all global tables (by stopping all 4NT and TCC
instances), and restarting.

Can't you use the same command line used in the shortcut at, say, the Start\Run
dialog (without "/C") and then use OPTION to access the custom INIfile? I'd
expect OPTION to edit the INIfile actually used to start the session.

I use a shortcut in "StartUp" as you do but without a custom INIfile. My (only)
INIfile specifies History=131072 (but I think Rex said the global list sizes are
fixed). What makes you think you only get 10K?
