Here's an excerpt from a working bat-file I have:What's the algorithm to calculate the width and height of a window as
required by the /POS option of the WINDOW command, given the desired size in
columns and rows?
set activepos=%@winpos[%activewindow] iff %_? eq 0 then set left=%@word[1,%activepos] set top=%@word[0,%activepos] set bottom=%@word[2,%activepos] set right=%@word[3,%activepos] set activepos=%left,%top,%@eval[%right - %left],%@eval[%bottom - %top] else unset /q activepos activewindow endiff

The error is that the TCC help says (of "2") "horizontal"; it should be"Erroneously" may be a bit harsh, since the width of the scroll bar and the
width of the arrow bitmap are identical; and the help text was taken
directly from Microsoft's documentation. Apparently MS decided to document
it differently in different places -- where did you see the text you're
