    TextInput.InputApp


    I have the below CMD that is supposed to End Task for . . .

    Code:
    
    taskkill /f /im "WindowsInternal.ComposableShell.Experiences.TextInput.InputApp.exe"

    . . . which I have put in the Startup folder %AppData%\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup.

    Unfortunately, this does NOT work and I end up running the command from a CMD Prompt.

    Am I missing something ?

    Thanks in advance.

    Without actually trying it, I'd guess it's related to requiring admin permissions.
    Same applies if you try to put something in Startup that requires a UAC prompt...

    Thanks for the reply. This is the Script that I am actually using . . .

    Code:
    
    @echo off
    fsutil Dirty Query %SystemDrive% > nul && goto:[RunAs]
    echo CreateObject^("Shell.Application"^). ^
    ShellExecute "%~0","+","","RunAs",1 > "%Temp%\+.vbs" && "%Temp%\+.vbs" & Exit
    :[RunAs]
    taskkill /f /im "WindowsInternal.ComposableShell.Experiences.TextInput.InputApp.exe"

    Thanks again for the reply @dalchina, it is appreciated.

    Do you mean create a shortcut in the Startup folder ?

    If that's where you want to launch it from, yes..

    You're lucky if you can get them! Usually it takes me a year to find people who a. respond to request for quote b. actually go on to do the job - and then I usually find I spend 5x as long finishing it for them!

    E.g. the consequences of double glazing, a badly fitted 1938 vintage door (always was since I knew it).. a bathroom floor fixed and prepared for vinyl..

    Anyway, try your sparkly new shortcut manually first, of course.
