  1. Can't run .bat files

    I haven't run a .bat file in quite a while, so perhaps I unknowingly did something along the was that prompted this problem. I was trying to run Brinks "Reset_Notification_Area_Icons_Cache.bat", but instead the file opens in my text editor. I disassociated .bat in that text editor, but "Reset_Notification_Area_Icons_Cache.bat" still opens in the text editor. I restarted the OS, but that didn't help. I then tested it on "Turn_Off_Fast_Startup.bat", but I got this Regardless of that, my default files settings shows my text editor as the .bat default. I have 2 related registry items [HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-3685327979-1050741526-3367000972-1001\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ApplicationAssociationToasts] "Applications\\NoteTab.exe_.bat"=dword:00000000 [HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-3685327979-1050741526-3367000972-1001\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FileExts\.bat\UserChoice] "ProgId"="Applications\\NoteTab.exe" If I recall correctly, I had a similar problem in the past with .reg files. I believe It was solved by dissociating .reg files the same way, and adding "edit" to the .reg files context menu, but I don't know exactly how to go about it in this situation.

  2. .bat file

    First things first: What is the contents of the batch file?

    Second step: What do you see when you run the batch file from a Command Prompt (cmd.exe)?

    Can't run .bat files

    .bat file

    A batch file (.bat extension) is basically a series of commands to be executed by the command-line interpreter. When you open the file, your system runs every command stored in the file from top to bottom, once the final command has been executed, it closes
    itself indicating it has finished its job. However, everything happens so fast you think it closes immediately and that's completely normal.

    If you want the command-line interpreter window to remains open once the last command has been executed, I suggest you do the following:

    - Right click on the .bat file and click on the 'edit' button.

    - It will open a notepad displaying a series of commands.

    - Create a new line by hitting enter after the final text and type in 'pause' without quotes.

    - Save the file and run it. This time the window will remain open.
