The Take Command window has a Status Bar that displays tooltips when you move the cursor over menu entries.

The status bar also displays the following information:

 

Onestep The current cursor position (row and column)

 

Onestep The tab window size (columns x rows)

 

Onestep The CPU usage (0 - 100%)

 

Onestep The memory load (0 - 100%)

 

Onestep The state of the Caps Lock key

 

Onestep The state of the Num Lock key

 

Onestep The state of the Scroll Lock key

 

Onestep The current date

 

Onestep The current time

 

You can hide the status bar fields by right clicking on the status bar and unchecking the fields you don't want to see.

 

There is a slider in the right corner that allows you to dynamically change the transparency level of the Take Command window. (You can also set the transparency in the Options / Configure Take Command / Windows dialog.)

 

If you are running TCC in a tab window and you enter an internal command, the status bar will display the brief syntax for that command. If you move the mouse over the status bar, a tooltip will pop up with the full syntax. If you enter an alias name, the status bar will identify it as an alias and display its value.
