TCMD Tab titles on Insider Windows

Mar 9, 2009
On the last Windows 10 Insider update (Build 17692) the titles on all tabs read "C:\Program Files\JPS.." rather than "TCC Prompt". All options seem to be the same. This is mostly a cosmetic problem, but it's strange enough to mention.

The "TCC Prompt" title is actually coming from TCC, if it determines that the current session is "TCC.EXE". TCMD will check the titles of the hidden console windows, and update the tab titles accordingly.

However, build 17692 changed the SetConsoleTitle behavior - if the console window is hidden, the API won't change the title. Not sure if this is a deliberate (albeit poorly thought out) optimization, or just a bug. (If it persists, it becomes a feature.)
