When returning to the TPX menu your cursor maybe located either at the side of the last session that you came from or at the command line.

If you would like to change your cursor from being at the last session to the command line please follow the steps below.


To change the location of the cursor to the command line from the last session you entered:

  1. Logon to TPXADMIN

  2. Select option 2 TPX System Options

  3. Select option 1 System Options (SMRT)

  4. Select the "STARTUP" SMRT table

  5. Select option 13 Operational Parameters

  6. Tab over to Option 15 and change the 'N' to 'Y' (to have cursor at the command line)

  7. Backout using PF3 until the change has been saved.

  8. Reload the SMRT table and be sure to logoff and back on to TPX.

To reverse this process, change Option 15 from 'Y' to 'N'.

If you want to see a description of Option 15 tab over to it and hit your PF1 key.
