You will typically start TCC in a Take Command tab window. But you can also start TCC from a Windows shortcut, located:


on the desktop, or

in the Quick Launch bar, or

in the Programs section of the Start menu (including its Startup subdirectory).


You may also start it from the Start / Run dialog.


See TCC Startup Options for more information on startup command line options.


When you configure a TCC shortcut, place the full path and name for the file in the Command Line field, and put any startup options that you want passed to TCC. For example:


Command Line:C:\Program Files\JPSoft\TCMD\TCC.EXE
Working directory:C:\


You do not need to use the Change Icon button, because TCC.EXE already contains icons.


Each Windows program has a command line which can be used to pass information to the program when it starts. The command line is entered in the Command Line field for each shortcut or each item in a Program Manager group (or each item defined under another Windows shell), and consists of the name of the program to execute, followed by any startup options.


The TCC startup command line does not need to contain any information. When invoked with an empty command line, TCC will configure itself from the TCMD.INI file, and then display a prompt and wait for you to type a command. However, you may add information to the startup command line that will affect the way TCC operates.


At startup, TCC will save the last directory in the directory history list (i.e., if you're running SHRALIAS or you've loaded the directory history in TCSTART) to the buffer used by "CD -".
