    Restore a Minimized Window (XO sp-2)

    I run a batch file that its execution stays minimized on the TaskBar. Is there a command I can use in the batch file that will maximize the window? Thanks!!!

    I don't remember such a command, but I readily admit that it's been a long time...

    Here's a forum that seems to agree with my thought: J!NX Forums - Dos code to maximize window

    Except that the last post in that thread contains this:
    <hr>/max is the arguement to run maximised but there is none for full screen.
    Eg.

    start /max "cmd"
    <hr>

    Not an ordinary BATch command, but there are at least two utilities that can do this, CMDOW (see Usage 3) and (but with less certainty) NirCmd (look in the full documentation for Maximise). CMDOW is the one I've used for this sort of requirement, using <font color=blue>CMDOW @ /MAX</font color=blue>..

    Note that many AV programs block the running of these useful utilities because they could be harmful in devious hands, and ZoneAlarm may even prevent you accessing the nirsoft.net web page.
