There are times that CMD /C is required like when using the newer /X command to pipe Long File Names to a file. You also need CMD /C to open Notepad or another program. START can be used also.

CMD /C will always minimize your program unless you use a SCREEN 0 program window. Fullscreen(graphics) screens will also be lost and the program may freeze.

To avoid a locked fullscreen program, use SCREEN 0: SCREEN ? AFTER the SHELL! You will have to make a new screen anyway. IF SCREEN 0 is fullscreen just use another screen mode for the first one.

Are you spacing the parameters correctly in the SHELL? It worked fine for me without CMD /C.

PS: You can also SHELL to a website by placing the link in the shell.


Again, change screens or it may lock the program when your default browser opens.
