When AB Commander is running, you can display the splash screen by pressing the Ctrl key and choosing the Help - About command from the menu, while keeping the Ctrl key depressed. To dismiss the splash screen, simply click on it with the mouse.

Show Re-establishing/Closing Connections messages

This option controls the messages that AB Commander displays when it starts while trying to re-establish connections to slow folders (such as network drives or shares) and the connections take longer than usual. Or, when AB Commander is shutting down and closing connections to the slow folders. Such messages provide visual feedback about the activity. If you would rather not see such messages, clear this option.
