    I was using an older script I beleive I got from Windows Secrets many moons ago. Lately it hasn't been closing the command prompt auotmatically. I wondered why then compared the script here and it had more lines in it. Tried it and it's much slower on the same machine just a few minutes apart. Still not closing automatically. Any ideas why?

    Hello Barefoot,

    The .bat file from Option One should close for you automatically when finished unless you're getting an error message.

    As I Said, I've noticed it not closing only in the last few weeks or so. I should have paid attention when, it would probably coincide with an update. Very interesting...

    Odd. Please try the updated .bat file now in the tutorial to see how it works for you.

    That closes the command prompt. Just adding "Exit" at the end of the file works.

    Thank you. A very small thing, but it was curious that the command prompt has been closing for years and only recently has it been staying open. I've never looked at the script until comparing it to yours.

    Curious, without "Exit" it closes on your machine?

    Yeah, it has always automatically closed without needing "Exit" for me. I'm glad it was able to sort it for you.
