Hello,

I have no idea about command prompt or batch files etc. but I get the impression it would be possible (and quite easy) to write a batch file and have it timed to open.

What I am trying to achieve is to programme my laptop to open sound files at certain times so, say, play a .wav file of a dog barking at midday.

Could anyone give me any clues

thanks,

antiquesdave.

Hello antiquesdave,

Perhaps something like this would work

Task Scheduler lets you create and manage the tasks you would like your system to perform automatically at the time you specify. See link below:
