Summary

In Microsoft Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows Millennium Edition, the default behavior of the operating system is to keep the console window of an MS-DOS application open if it has displayed text in the window. This provides users with an opportunity to read any messages that may have been displayed in the window before the window is closed. To close a window in this state, you must click the close button (that is, "X") on the window caption or Close on the System menu.


In some instances, however, the user's needs may require that the console window close automatically. The solution is to programmatically remove all the displayed text of an MS-DOS application thereby allowing the console window to close automatically.

More Information

The displayed text of an MS-DOS application can be removed by adding the application to the following .bat file:


@echo off
<DOS app>
@cls
Then launch this .bat file instead of the original application. The first line, @echo off, prevents .bat file commands from being displayed in the window. Once the MS-DOS application has completed, the cls command clears any text that may have been sent to the Console window. Thus, because no displayed text has been left in the Console window, the Console window closes after the .bat file has completed.
