    Batch file hide command window

    I have a batch command to back up a subdirectory:
    xcopy "C:\All\*" "E:\Allback\*" /E /Q

    How can I hide the command window during the execution?

    Try this VBscript method (there's undoubtedly a PowerShell equivalent, too): How to run .BAT files invisibly, without displaying the Command Prompt window - The Winhelponline Blog.

    Thanks for the lead. I'll go with the minimize option. Don't know why I didn't think of it.
