PowerCmd allows you to specify the folder that contains the original iterm or some related files. Sometimes, programs need to use files from other locations. You might need to specify the folder where these files are located so that the program can find them.

- Auto Save Logs
PowerCmd allows you to save command line output logs automatically. It is a critical feature that can help prevent loss of your work. This capability doesn't impact your interactive operations on consoles, but can protect your data if console or your computer unexpectedly quits, and can provide you the history log of consoles conveniently. You can easily access your logs from PowerCmd toolbar.

PowerCmd allows you to define your own rule for the name of the log file using builtin date and time variables.

- Quick Launch Toolbar
PowerCmd allows you customize a toolbar for quick launching applications, batch scripts and commands. Each toolbar tool content contains six elements: title, command, agruments and initial directory.
