Title command to unclutter title bar question

#1 Post by Jer » 24 Mar 2019 22:36

Title help says
TITLE [string]

string Specifies the title for the command prompt window.
Are there any secrets on how to keep the title bar clean?
Is this the best solution assigning character #255 as the string?

Code: Select all

Title ÿ
Thanks.

Yesterday "Title" was not working for me. During code development, "cmd" appeared in the title bar
and repeated itself.
Today, just "Title" is keeping the bar clear.

There is a post on Stack Overflow about how Kedit for Windows, my text editor, saves files. It states
that Kedit does not keep the blanks at the end of a line when a file is saved.
I observe that even before saving a file, blanks added to a line end by tapping the spacebar do
not appear when viewing the line with HEXTYPE, where hex and decimal values are displayed
for each of the characters.
Thanks for your title<space> solution Stephan. I will watch that Title without the space
continues to work.

a good text editor is a friend for life :)
