If you enter SYSVDLG at the commandline you will be able to access all of the system variable options, which can be quite enlightening.
There are so many ways commands and tools can be used other than the default settings.
This images show just a couple of the GRIPS system variable settings.
At any rate, I would strongly suggest that time permitting you go through these system variables (meaning the GRIPS ones here) to set them as you would like them.
The GRIPMULTIFUNCTIONAL variable would also be of interest to you.
