    Re: Minimized? (XP-SP-2)

    Create a shortcut in the suitable place (say, on your desktop) by right-clicking and selecting New | Shortcut.

    Put your command line in the "Type the location..." box.

    Type an appropriate name for the shortcut. Click Finish.

    Right-click the shortcut icon, from pop-up menu choose Properties, then from Run drop-down box select Minimize. You can also change shortcut icon clicking "Change Icon" button and navigating to C:Windowssystem32Shell32.dll or another icon container.

    Re: Minimized? (XP-SP-2)

    Edited by HansV to get rid of problem caused by %1

    I understand that method... but this command string is called from the context menu item via the registry.

    The reg entry that generates the context menu item is:

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTInternetShortcutshellOpenSCinIE_w ith_BAT]
    @="Open in &IE"

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTInternetShortcutshellOpenSCinIE_w ith_BATcommand]
    @=""C:WinAppsCommInternetUtilsIE_2_OpenOpenSCinIE. bat" "%1""

    And the string mentioned initially is the only command in the bat file.

    Minimized? (XP-SP-2)

    Also edited by HansV to replace % with <!t>[%]<!/t> to get rid of duplication

    Edited by Bigaldoc to make the post number live. (Adding square brackets and a colon is all it takes.) You can do it by highlighting the post number.

    I've been using the script Jefferson uploaded <post#=565544>post 565544</post#> to add "Open in IR" to the context menu if you use another browser as default.

    Works great.

    It opens up a command window, executing

    cscript.exe "C:WinAppsCommInternetUtilsIE_2_OpenOpenSCinIE.vbs " %1

    Is there any "flag" that would make that window run "minimized" or hidden?

    Regards,
    Chuck Billow

    PS -- Thanks Jefferson....

    Re: Minimized? (XP-SP-2)

    The %1 causes text to be duplicated each time the post is edited. I got rid of the problem by using <!t>[%]<!/t> tags in both posts that use %.

    Re: Minimized? (XP-SP-2)

    -------------Edited------------------------

    In your .bat file add START /MIN command in the beginning of the command line:

    START /MIN cscript.exe "C:WinAppsCommInternetUtilsIE_2_OpenOpenSCinIE.vbs " %1
