    CmdPrompt "timeout" from Win7 replaced by "sleep" in Win10?


    In DOS batch scripts under Windows 7 there was a function "timeout" which stops the execution for n seconds.

    This command seems to be replaced by "sleep" in DOS batch scripts under Win10.

    Is this true?

    Nope.
    Code:
    Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.14393]
    (c) 2016 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.
    
    C:\Users\Pyprohly>sleep
    'sleep' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
    operable program or batch file.
    
    C:\Users\Pyprohly>

    The timeout command is used primarily for batch scripting. Everyone is trying to forget about batch files and the language isnít expected to receive any more updates any time soon.
