Should there be a 'clear history command' to clear the history without editing wincmd.ini by hand?
Yes, it would be very useful.

I made a feature request for a clear history comand and was forced to start a poll about it.

Sometimes I want to clear command line history as well as last searches and all tabs etc. e.g. when I want to create a new 'moveable' TC on CD (or USB STick etc.) or when I want to share my installation with a friend.

Now I have to open wincmd.ini and delete the entries in each section manually.

A cm_ClearHist could open a dialog with tickboxes for
- Commandline History
- Searchname
- SearchIn
- Searchtext
- Selection
- renameTemplates
- right path
- left path
- searches
- rename
- lefttabs
- righttabs

so one could select the sections to clear at once.

What do you think about it ?

It was just my interpretation of "I don't care' because as a command can be used or not - it makes no sense to make it optional.

It was according to postings depending new features where always at least one says 'it has to be optional' Laughing .

I've been complaining about this for at least the past year or two.

2Sheepdog
Smile Hello Stefan !
¤ To complement that feature, I thought that the actual command cm_ClearCmdLine might be changed, in order it removes really the current command-line contain from the list.
* A small dialog-box to confirm and an "Apply" button should do the trick.
* Isn't always necessary to clear the whole command-line historical, but only to remove some entries from it.

As long as @ghisler donsn't implement this feature you can use Ultra History Cleaner of ts4242.

Edit by mod, new URL: http://utceditors.totalcmd.net/ (thx to pol098 for notice)

I think that that is a great idea - or you could just delete wincmd.ini and let TC recreate it. I like the idea of selecting what history needs to be deleted.

I withdraw my vote for implementation in TC of the history cleaning.
This app of ts4242 does the job just fine. Also because it's a function that's not normally needed in a daily routine.

Hm, so many years ago, and nothing to find about a ClearHistory in the actual version of TC Sad

I'm just coming from WinCmd 5 to TC 7.5, and miss this feature! The WinCMD forget his history (Alt+Down) when you are closing the tool. But now, anything is saved. I think its a little work to implements a funktion with one Checkbox in the programm-options, which clear all historys after closing the prog. Isn't it? Please! Smile

Yer prolly best off redirecting History items you don't want to be restored to their own .ini file.
Then use a .cmd/.bat file to start TC:
Quote:
DEL "C:\Location\of\TCHistory.ini"
START "" "%ProgramFiles%\TotalCMD\TotalCMD.exe"

This "cleaning" can be easily done with any scripting language (PP, VBS, AHK...); no need to bother Mr Ghisler and to enlarge the application size. Voted for "No"

In my opinion cleaning the MRU-Lists and wiping out the traces is a core-function of a File-Manager and shouldn't be transferred to a 3rd party program.

For the developer it means little work, but for some users is privacy the most precious good.

So I have voted for: Yes, it would be very useful.

But the file size might get bigger, Stance, and 3 people using Win 3.1 might not be able to run total commander. File size of the binary is more important than features.
