    Command Prompt Experimental changes


    Anyone figured out a use for the Opacity setting for Command Prompt on the Experimental tab?

    I've tried it at many different settings and I just can't see a use for it.

    Not sure exactly what you mean, but if you put the opacity to 30, it becomes almost invisible.. It may come in handy is some circumstances...

    That's what I mean and I can't think of a single use for it. If it's invisible then you can't type in it to do anything because you can't see what you're typing (or where).

    You might be right, but there may be a use, considering it is easy to see basic type, it might be nice to be able to see through it in case there is some window holding information you might need sitting under it.

    Maybe Microsoft is looking for things to give some folks more motivation to move to the OS, you know sort like putting cup holders in your new car..

    Is everyone else's 'experimental' tab gone now, and the 'ctrl' options just part of the main menu? Or is it just me? Probably just me... oh, and it seems like someone had a good sense of humor - go look at your default setting for lines in your buffer.

    Thanks. I'm guessing with one of the wonderful updates *cough* it changed 'experimental' to 'release'. I love it when it does that -_-

    Oh, and yes, that code page is the same for me... dunno about anyone else though.
