    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.)

    Ok, thanks. I'm still running XP, didn't know that.

    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.
