Take Command shows "Administrator:" in the title bar

TC 12.10, latest version: Take Command shows "Administrator: TC 12.10 -TCC" although my user name is "thorsten". I would like it to not show any user name (since I already integrated it into my TCC prompt), but definitely not "Administrator". I am member of the Administrators group and UAC is completely off.

Additional bug: the "titleprompt" mentioned in the documentation ("TITLEPROMPT can be used to specify the contents of TCC's window title. [...]"):
thorsten@hombre[C:\]> titleprompt
TCC: Unknown command "titleprompt"

Take Command shows "Administrator:" in the title bar (plus additional bug)

You did not show what commands you use to generate the title, nor even which title you are referring to:
- TCMD window title
- tab title of a TCC session in TCMD
- standalone TCC window title

| Additional bug: the "titleprompt" mentioned in the documentation
| ("TITLEPROMPT can be used to specify the contents of TCC's window
| title. [...]"):
| thorsten@hombre[C:\]> titleprompt
| TCC: Unknown command "titleprompt"

TITLEPROMPT is an environment variable which must be assigned a value using the SET command. It is listed in HELP under TCC and TCC/LE -> Variables & Functions -> System Variables. The text makes it clear: "modifying its value..."

You can use the TITLE command instead!

TC 12.10, latest version: Take Command shows "Administrator: TC 12.10 -TCC" although my user name is "thorsten". I would like it to not show any user name (since I already integrated it into my TCC prompt), but definitely not "Administrator". I am member of the Administrators group and UAC is completely off.

WAD - "Administrator:" isn't a user name, it is displayed (like CMD.EXE) when you start an elevated TCMD process.

Additional bug: the "titleprompt" mentioned in the documentation ("TITLEPROMPT can be used to specify the contents of TCC's window title. [...]"):
thorsten@hombre[C:\]> titleprompt
TCC: Unknown command "titleprompt"

Not a bug -- TITLEPROMPT is an environment variable, not a command.

WAD... Okay, not what I would prefer, but I can live with that. Having an option for that nevertheless might make sense.

Who does that, TCC or Windows? I'll start playing with Windows 7 later this
summer and I'll be very disappointed (and vocal about it) if I have to look at
that.

As Rex mentioned, even CMD.EXE does it, so it's Windows. But if I set TITLEPROMPT, the "Administrator:" and everything else does get replaced by whatever I set it to.

FTP.EXE doesn't do it.

TCC does it for the default title for compatibility with CMD. If you don't like it, don't run elevated. Or change the title.
