Chat Window
Hi -

Is there a way that I can open the chat window per SCRT window? It looks like an 'all or nothing' approach for the Mac version.

Hi Tom,

Thanks for the question. I am looking into this. I will let you know what I find.

Hi Tom,

It is not currently possible to set the Chat Window state for separate SecureCRT windows. I have created a feature request in our SecureCRT development database to add this capability. Should a future release of SecureCRT have the ability to set the Chat Window state for each open SecureCRT window, we will post to this forum thread. If you would like to be notified directly, please complete and submit the form at the following location:

Thanks Todd -

I'm sure I'll notice when/if it gets implemented.

I can't remember if I submitted this request, so I didn't do it again (for fear of a dupe) ... can you confirm?

I had 4 windows open, hit my 'show chat window' shortcut & bam, it opened on all of them, reminding me of this report.

Hi Tom,

I am not sure what it is you are asking. Are you asking if we received an e-mail from you requesting this feature?

If so, we have not received an e-mail from you. Additionally, you do not need to worry about a duplicate. Generally, we are able to correlate forum posts with e-mail requests.

If not, this thread has been added to the feature request, and if a future release has independent use of the Chat Window on a per SecureCRT window basis, we will post to this forum thread. Additionally, I have informed the SecureCRT product director that you are still interested in this feature.

If you are asking if this feature has been implemented yet, it has not.

Does this help to answer your question?

The Chat (Command) window setting has been changed to be independent rather than applying to all SecureCRT application windows. This change was made in a pre-beta version of SecureCRT. If you would like to try it, please send email to me at
