Hi all,

I using the schedule task to schedule a bat file to be running on a specific time. When it is running, the command prompt will prompt out to show it was running. But i wish to hide the command prompt so that the bat file will run in a quite situation.

I hope tht can use the batch programming to control the command prompt.

Thanks a lot in future who helping me!!! :whistling:

Try inserting this as the first line of the batch file:

@ECHO OFF

It should cause the commands to execute invisibly, but will not stop the DOS box from appearing if you're running it within Windows.
