    "Start" command won't work correctly


    I want to make a batch which launch multiple excels files at once.

    As here:


    I know I can do it with the "START" command so.

    My files are named with spaces just like "1 1.xlsx".

    So I should use the command:

    start "c:\1 1.xlsx"

    It simply won't works because of the " " "

    If the file is "c:\1.xlsx" the start command will work correctly.

    The command "call" instead working correcly with the " " " on the path.

    But I need to use "start" command

    Oh, I have a more issue.

    start "" "C:\Test\.xlsx"

    Won't work.

    It seem that start doesn't work with " ".

    Help again

    I found a program which is "Lacuna Launcher": same issue with special characters, but the issues seem to be only o Windows 10 and not Windows 7.
