Among other problems, the patch for #11820 uses a unix-only tcl function. 

In non-shell editor and output windows, Select all (Control-A at least on windows) Delete (or Backspace, or Cut to clipboard, ^X on Windows) clears the window.  Delete does not work for the read-only history portion of the Shell, hence the request for a separate menu item.

However, if an editor window is open, one can still get a clean Shell by closing Shell and re-opening with Run => Shell or running the file being edited.
