If you mean what version of Windows, the version number is visible in the screenshot.  No program ran in the console that was in my screenshot.  The rectangle appears anywhere on the console screen where I click it, not just the command prompt.  If I click it again, the old rectangle disappears and a new rectangle appears.

 

But, now I see where webwiseguy got "C:\users\ruz" which demonstrates one of many reasons why that folder is a big nuisance, more specifically, it draws attention to the irrelevant thereby obfuscating the relevant, much like some posters.

The folder @WebWiseWoman , is referencing is your %username.

 

As in C:\users\ruz


which does exist

 

As for your pretty little cursor issue, check your buffer size.

But, my "username" isn't "ruz".  And, why would anyone expect anything of mine to reside in a Microsoft folder?  

 

Although such a folder exists, it is completely empty of personal files.  Excuse me, if I forgot about some Microsoft nonsense that I never use.  I just remembered that I once tried deleting one of the subfolders and found out I couldn't.  Those folders are a nuisance.

 

You still haven't answered my question, "What do you suppose is the purpose of that rectangle?"

There is no "ruz folder" nor do I understand the reference.

The program is written by me in Visual C++ for training a neural network.  Since originally posting about this problem, I have discovered that clicking on the screen only interrupts a program that is printing to the screen and is probably limited to Visual C's printf function.  But, as far as I can tell, clicking on the screen always stops the console screen from automatically closing after program completion.

 

What did you two suppose the purpose of the rectangular thing created by clicking on the screen is?  Decoration?  I cannot find any documentation of this.

Beware this Difference Between Windows 10 and 7

I am guessing that, unlike me, most of you do not often run programs designed for the console screen or command prompt.  I am talking about this:

ConsoleScreen.png

 

I call your attention to that little rectangle on the screen.  That is where I clicked it with my mouse cursor.  Get this, clicking the console screen pauses the operation of any program running from the command prompt and, the only way I know to unpause it is to press almost any key on the keyboard.   If you accidentally click the console screen and don't notice the little rectangle, you can waste a lot of time.  In my case, I run a program that normally takes several days to complete and I have been screwed several times by this Windows 10 feature.  Not so with Windows 7.
