Insert mode always defaults to on, when the WinOne® Command Prompt is started.
A flashing vertical bar is displayed, when insert mode is on and a flashing block is displayed when overwrite mode is on.
When the up or down arrow keys are used to scroll through the history list, and a partial command line has been entered at the command prompt, then only the command lines in the history list that start with the same sequence of characters will be displayed.
When scrolling through the history list and there are no more commands to scroll through, then a beep will sound to signal that the end of the history list has been reached. See Event Sounds to associate a particular type of sound to this event.
See File Name Completion for more information on setting Tab key options.
