Reflection xterm - need some tuning assistance

new job where they use Reflection on windows desktop that I haven't used before. Two things I need to change or adjust and cannot seem to find. First, I use Windows Alt-tab extensively to switch between windows including reflection xterm window. When I switch to one of those, a tab character prints onto the screen every time I switch to that window. I'd like for that not to happen. That phenomena hasn't happened in the past using vnc, Exceed, putty, etc. Second, I'd like to know how to change the default window size. Product Details:
I launch xterm session from Reflection X Manager using a clone of X client - "Linux - xterm". Help/About says :
 Reflection X Advantage Version 5.1 (5.1.622).

Command line is:
 (xterm -sl 2000 -fn 10x20 -sb -ls -display %IP#% -name %T% &), host type=Linux, Secure Shell.

thx for assistance

I think I found part of the answer just now. I edited a copy of the keyboard's Explicitly Mapped keys for TAB character to be "NoSymbol, ,Tab" instead of "Tab, Tab" and that seems to have solved the tab issue after I bounced the X Manager. I had tried the same earlier and it didn't work, although I didn't bounce the Manager then. I'm wondering why I don't get a tab at all now though. I can live with space bar, but I would like TAB key to actually make a tab space.

(xterm -geometry 148x32 -sl 2000 -fn 10x20 -sb -ls -display %IP#% -name %T% &)
added the -geometry 148x32 and that got my column width fixed,
however the terminal window starts too far to the right. Now I'm trying to find out how to get the terminal window to start on the far left of the screen, if anyone knows that.

ended up with this:
 (xterm -geometry 160x32+0+100 -sl 2000 -fn 10x20 -sb -ls -display %IP#% -name %T% &)

just needed to use the whole -geometry command. +0 being far left margin of the screen and +100 being 100 something down from the top of the screen (pixels maybe?).

Ok, so remaining problem is how to get my tab key to do a tab, but also have the alt-tab issue remain fixed.

UNIX and Linux

Unix (trademarked as the UNIX certification mark) is a very mature family of multitasking, multiuser computer operating systems that evolved from the original AT&T Unix. Unix development starting in the 1970s by legendary Bell Labs programmers Ken Thompson, Dennis Ritchie, and others. Unix was first targeted for the Bell System and AT&T licensed Unix to outside parties. In the 1970s time period, this lead to a variety of for-profit as well as not-for-profit Unix variants.
In the early days, this included the University of California, Berkeley (BSD), Microsoft (Xenix), IBM (AIX), and Sun Microsystems (Solaris). In the early 1990s, AT&T sold their Unix rights to Novell. In 1995 Novell sold their Unix business to the Santa Cruz Operation (SCO). The UNIX trademark was passed to The Open Group, a "neutral" industry consortium. The Open Group promoted the use of the UNIX trademark for certified operating systems that comply with the Single UNIX Specification (SUS). In 2014 Apple's macOS became the Unix version with the largest global install base and macOS remains the largest Unix-user base today.
Linux is a family of open source Unix-like operating systems based on the Linux kernel. The Linux kernel is an operating system kernel first released by Linus Torvalds on 17 September 1991. Linux distributions include the Linux kernel, system software and libraries. Popular free open source Linux distributions include Debian, Fedora, and Ubuntu. Commercial Linux distributions include Red Hat Enterprise Linux and SUSE Linux Enterprise Server. Linux may be freely modified and redistributed. Anyone on the planet may create a Linux distribution for any purpose.
