Hi milfor,
You can make the command panel appear in your GUI by first clicking and holding on the "View" menu. The command panel menu item is located in a sub-menu of the "Panels" item (the very first item) of the View menu. Navigate to "View --> Panels --> Command". Release the mouse button and the Command menu will appear near the right bottom side of your screen, below the Game Record panel. It is very small, only approximately 40 pixels high including its title. The command panel is a combo box, and will save commands you have entered during your current playing session. It also has a "Help" button to the right of the entry box. When pressed, this button will open the "Messages" panel if it is not already open. In the Messages panel you will see a listing of the various commands which are available to the user. If you wish more detail about the commands you may enter, there is also a menu command, "Help --> Commands", which when selected will open a new floating window containing an hierarchical outline view with brief descriptions of the different commands available. True, it may seem impractical to force the user in your situation to have to enter "new game" on a command line when starting each new game. However, this is the mode that you have chosen to put GnuBG into. You have deliberately disabled the "Start New Games Immediately" feature because you wish to stop and analyze each finished game before you continue playing. May I suggest that rather than stopping after each game to analyze your play, you instead play short matches of three or maybe five points and then analyze? This way you could re-enable the "Start New Games Immediately" feature, and you would still be getting the fast turnaround on playing advice which you desire.
                Hope this helps. Take care,
                                           Myshkin LeVine

Excuse my ignorance but where can I find this Command panel?
Isn't it impractical to force the user to enter the same 2 words
after every game he plays in his life?

I don't think there is a GUI equivalent for:

new game
(type it in "Command" panel)

I have not ticked the option 'Start new games immediatelly'
because I want to analyse my errors before I play the next
game. But how can I start the next game after analysing?
