    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?

    'sleep' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
    operable program or batch file.

    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.
