Re: [Clip] Closing DOS window
- Hi Dave,
Thanks for your response.
I do not think that there are any "bad lines" in the batch file. No messages
(error or otherwise) are produced. (What I described happens if the batch file
contains only the line invoking NoteTab.) The last line of the batch file
starts NoteTab. NoteTab starts correctly. The "DOS" window stays open because
NoteTab does not exit. (In other words, the batch file does not "end" because
NoteTab does not "return" to it, because NoteTab does not exit.) I can close
the "DOS" window manually with the keyboard. My Clip is an attempt to
automatically close the "DOS" window and keep NoteTab open, but fails (closes
NoteTab and the "DOS" window) when the ^!FocusApp "Command Prompt" is
I would like to know why ^!FocusApp "Command Prompt" closes NoteTab, and how I
can close just the "DOS" window.

H. Savage, thank you for the information on NoteTab minimization.
Jody, thanks for the information on keyboard-related commands. The organization
