View Full Version : Batch Files

I know this is simple question so excuse me for my ignorance. How do you get the window to close automatically when writing a batch file that is executed thru windows? What is the command line?

Good thing I wasn't holding my breath...

If anyone cares, I found out the command is cls . So long as you have echo off. If you don't turn echo off, the screen will just clear but not close.

This is really the wrong forum for your question. Should be in software.

You're right Jetta... The logic was, more eyes to read the question, better chances of getting an answer.

So much for logic :)

Just for your info... Check you help file in windows 2000, all the commands you might need are listed under command reference.
