    command file: Opening a window only if not already opened


    I am on a Windows 10 Home PC, ver. 21H1. I am a newbie to command files. I've written one to execute a program, and then display my local Temp folder. Unfortunately, if the Temp folder already is displaying in Explorer, the command opens a new instance of that window. How would I modify it to open the Temp window only if it has not already been opened, and otherwise, just give the open Temp window the focus? Thank you. Here's my code: @Echo off "C:\Program Files\progManufacturer\progName\prog.exe" -l %SystemRoot%\explorer.exe %temp% exit

    :)

    .txt will open open in Command Prompt

    I miss the Windows XP file association manager, it allowed you to select which of the commands would be executed when you double click a file (open, print, edit, etc...), it was removed since Vista.
    Some good people created the Types application, which you can use to select the default action of the file double click, all you go to do is select the "txt" extension from the list, right mouse click, hit "Properties" and on the "Actions" tab right click "open" command and assign "Default" to it.
    Hopefully this will solve your problems, although I think your PC is probably infected with some kind of malware that will continuously change that setting back, so I also advise installing some anti-virus like MSE or NOD-32 and preform a full scan.
    Good luck.

    Simply, HOW? I got the DDS plugin but the POS wont open DDS files still. Can someone give me a step-by-step rundown of how to install the DDS plugin for gimp so I know if I'm missing something?

    Command windows opening behind other windows

    Hi all,

    Hopefully a quick one here.

    Ive made a small application to poll TeamCity build monitor take data about current and past builds and store them in a data base. Its only a very small application and im using windows task scheduler to run it every five minuets. Its working grand and does everything its meant to however when it runs it open a command window. Im not displaying anything nor taking user input and its finished and closed in under half a minuet but it opens on top of any windows I already have open. Control is still focused on the window I was working in before the command window opened. What id like to know is there a way within either task scheduler or something I can programme within the application to either stop the command window opening up but the application still run as its not needed or to make it automatically open behind all other open windows?

    Thanks all
