I find myself in a situation where I frequently need to start TCC.EXE with the RUN dialog (thanks to the thread about how I could put it in the Win-key menu), and need to specify items the START command could handle:
1/ start directory other than the installation directory
2/ elevated
3/ screen buffer and window size
How can I do this with the RUN command?
I am aware I could create a one-line batch program and use a temporary instance of TCC to execute it, I just don't want to waste the extra TCC instance startup time.

The TCC startup time is about 50ms. I doubt that using an extra TCC instance every time you want to do this over the next five years will use as much time as you spent on this thread (much less trying to create an alternate solution)!
