Take Command tab only uses half of window

I have a new laptop. The laptop screen resolution is 3840 x 2160. The tab window in Take Command running TCC is only using the top half of the window. The status bar says the size is 81x21, but there is room for around twice that many rows. Take Command Options has the tab font set to Consolas at size 10.

TCC 19.10.54 x64 Windows 10 [Version 6.3.10586]

This is a Windows issue, not TCMD. Windows will not allow TCMD to create a console window larger than the max size determined based on the font size.

There are two ways to work around this:

1) Change the default font size for console windows to something smaller
2) Try Take Command v20, which will do this for you automatically
