Hi,

Does anyone of you know how to run a batch file in the background. meaning I just want it to be invisible not minimized or taskbar or anything. I hope to get a reply soon asap. Thanks.

Hi cassie90

are you talking about windows batch jobs? they can be started as scheduled jobs and then they are not visible, if you configure the job this way.

hope this helps

if you double click a bat file you get either a minimized windows in the taskbar or the window itself. try writing another bat locks like this


@echo off

start "window1" /min cmd.exe /c batch1.cmd

start "window2" /min cmd.exe /c batch2.cmd

start "window3" /min cmd.exe /c batch3.cmd

start "window4" /min cmd.exe /c batch4.cmd

echo four minimized background command prompts running four scripts



and run this new one, this will start new batches in background.

if you use the /interactive option then you get a window for this job. if you don't use the option, well you will not see a thing 😉
