As I recently figured out, you can also do this with ZTreeWin !!
- *except* for omitting the requirement for ENTER; in ZTreeWin this can't be avoided (at least not by simply hacking it...)

In ZTreeWin (current 1.32f version) this is adress 4AD88h
And it's just 5 bytes to be edited (because there is no closing 0Dh (CR) that may be changed).

The other occurences of the word "PRUNE" are needed for display purposes (if they are followed by a ":" colon) and do not necessarily have to be changed.

You can also edit the term "PRUNE" to just a "Y", for instance...

Warning! - make sure:

- Always make a backup-copy of ztw.exe first, to ensure you can return to the default version, if anything goes wrong!!!!

- Do not edit the active ztw.exe file (in the ZTree directory) with ZTree itself (rather edit a copy or use another editor)!!

Greetings
