confusion about labelling tabs

  • Derell Licht

    I tend to "Rename Tab" on my various regular tabs that I use, it makes keeping track of what's where.  However, even after I rename the tab, the current path still is (partially) shown on the tab after my label, which introduces alot of visual "noise" on the tab bar.  Is there someway I can turn off the path on tabs that I've renamed?? 

    Alternately, can I just turn off the path display entirely??  It really isn't all that useful, since only part of the path is visible anyway…

    Derell Licht,

    Did you try to uncheck "Use console window title" in the Appearance section of Settings?

    If you did, could you please post a screenshot, because I'm failing to understand "the current path is still shown"?

    By the way, do you use non-cmd.exe shell?

    Okay, I checked and I already had "Use console window title" unchecked.  I don't know how to include a screen shot in this message, so I put it on my website, here's the link:

    Notice that each tab shows my custom label, and then shows the (partial) path to the directory.  That path, on the tab, is what I want to remove.

    Oops!!  Sorry, missed part of your message.
    I'm using tcc/le V11.00.35

    Sorry, can't even reproduce the behaviour in TCC/LE. Neither on its own nor inside the Console it displays the working directory.

    May be you can publish your console.xml and/or your tcc .ini file?

    Just another weird idea: did you play with Show Command and Show Command in tabs checkboxes?

    HA!!  My bad… it was my tcc/le startup file that was doing that… it dated from waaaaaaaay back in the 4nt days, when we didn't have tabbed windows, and I wanted the current path on the title bar.  I'd *long* forgotten that was there (in the PROMPT definition, of all things), don't need it now.  Sorry for the confusion, and thanks *again* to akirill, for pointing me in the right direction!
