TCC - Full Screen/History window conflict - workaround?

#1
I sometimes run 4NT full screen, i.e. start it up and press Alt-Enter. Works fine.

TCC has a problem with this mode because the history windows are graphical, not part of the console.

Is there a workaround? I couldn't see a setting for this in the help file.

There is no workaround because TCC does not support full-screen mode.
(Microsoft dropped support for full-screen consoles in Vista and Windows
Server 2008.)

That's not strictly true as I understand it. They made full-screen text
modes optional for video drivers. I believe some (many?) still support them.
I am certain I have seen full-screen text mode in Vista here at work.

The old-style drivers (may) still support full-screen. The new mode
drivers will not.
