Hi Guys...

I have written a small batch file for some programs we're running at the company. I do not want my users to be able to close this batch easily or by mistake. Is it at all possible to hide the tab that this batch file creates on the taskbar?

Please help, this is kinda urgent.

Right click on Start, select Properties, Taskbar tab, Customize.

See if your batch file tab is listed. If it is, click on it and change to "Always Hide".

What if you ran the batch file with "> NUL" at the end.

So it would be:

nameofbatch.bat > NUL
