Really really hating how MIRC automatically "minimizes" my current window -- would much prefer it to do a ClearLine on what i was typing....

Anyone have any ideas on how to change that? i've went through about every menu / option i can find.

What do you mean by "minimizes"? – Hello71 Jul 13 '10 at 1:28

SetTitleMatchMode, 2
#IfWinActive, mIRC
Send ^a{Backspace}

In the Autohotkey scripting language should do it - I don't have a copy of mIRC to hand to test it on, though.

yea - would prefer to do it without 3p software. could do the same with autoit or even my G15. – GruffTech Feb 1 '10 at 17:46
@Gruff Well, alas, we often have to fill the gaps with software like autoit or AHK. It'd be nice if we didn't, but at least we can. – Phoshi Feb 1 '10 at 18:06

This can be controlled by a preference. Open Options (Alt+O), go to Other → Keys, then uncheck "Escape key minimizes window."
