    automatically close out the command prompt window


    Hello,

    I managed to create an Elevated cmd thing for my HideDropbox.bat file and got it to run at startup. It works fine, but it doesn't automatically close out the command prompt window when it's done applying the changes. Is there a way to make it do so. And if not, is there a way to make it run in the background so I won't have to keep manually closing the command prompt window?

    I'm not sure if this is the right thread to ask this in tbh. I asked here because it deals with a HideDropbox.bat file that I managed to get to run at startup via an Elevated Command Prompt window.

    That worked when running the .bat file but the .bat file is being run via an elevated command prompt and it doesn't close the command prompt window unfortunately.

    ---EDIT---

    Scratch that, got it to work that way. I just had to edit the task in task scheduler to run the .bat file directly instead of through cmd.exe and it still kept the elevated permissions. So the having exit at the end of the line in the .bat file works perfectly now. Thanks.
