How do I specify a change address with monero-wallet-cli transfer address amount? Where can I find more information about monero-wallet-cli transfer? monero-wallet-cli --help does not give me anything to read about the command, it does not even seem to be listed there among other commands.

How do I specify a change address with monero-wallet-cli transfer address amount?

You don't, the wallet creates a new output (a change output), for you.

monero-wallet-cli --help does not give me anything to read about the command

--help is a command line flag for help of the other command line flags. When you run the wallet (interactively), type help transfer to see the help for the transfer command. Or help all to see all available commands.

  • Is there a way to consolidate my UTXOs to one subaddress (other than to use sweep_all)?

  • Why do you want to "consolidate"? Outputs are owned by the wallet, regardless which subaddress they were sent to.

  • I want to manage my UTXOs in such a way in order to pay less with fees in the future.

  • So then sweep_all or sweep_single. Remember this though: Given tx fees are sub-cent and reduce with usage growth, consolidating over fears of fee increase is really unnecessary. The other downside with consolidation is locking change when you later spend. There's really no point in trying to be clever here.
