Apologies if I misinformed (I use TOS 2) ,the impression given in the manual
was that no extra window's were avavilable (certainly is the case with the
desktop) and I assumed that along with some of the other window
enhancements this was not available to TOS 1.xx. With 2.06 you do get all of
one extra (Total 8) desk window's.

Indeed ,or by checking the cookie jar .Also I suppose that other features
like window updating and background window enhancement's are active.

I have found it to be remarkably tolerant of all the other stuff in my auto
folder ....maybe I have a nose for cleanly programmed code :-) I run it pretty
close to the top of the folder.
