Should there be a 'clear history command' to clear the history without editing wincmd.ini by hand?

Yes, it would be very useful.
No, I'm glad that TC always remembers my commands etc.
I don't know, but if it has to be optional.

By reading the first post you can find out that there is the purpose to have the TC portable on a USB or to share a well configured Total Commander installation with friends and co-workers.
A good example of public relations. (Better sales, free updates)

I believe your argument is not valid. Face the truth: This problem didn't came up in Win 3.1 but in WinXP or so.
Whats the reason to take care about stoneage-Operating systems ? Do Win 3.1 users take care about Vista/Se7en/Windows8 users?
Do Win 3.1 users buy Total Commander licences ? Do WE really care about the size of Setup-files or executables ? I doubt that.

All these false Considerations are resulting in a situation where the TC becomes unattractive to users with the last OS and "good" hardware.

What is better: Having the Win3.1-users looking for alternative programms or Vista-users who quit to use TC ?

And when I say unattractive, I also mean: Suspicious (because it can be used to spy out the user)

You have a sarcasm sign?

Mal angenommen, du drückst Strg+F, wählst die FTP-Verbindung (mit gespeichertem Passwort), klickst aber nicht auf Verbinden, sondern fällst tot um.

I didn't think it was necessary to ;) wink in this particular case...
I thought the,
and 3 people using Win 3.1 might not be able to run total commander
would be easily detected as sarcasm...

I've just come to this 2004 thread from a search. The Ultra History Cleaner is still going strong, at a different URL:

There are editors for Main Menu, Start Menu, Directory Menu, Extended Commands, Button Bar, History, Configuration, and Hotkeys, and log and version history viewers,
