It doesn’t. This is often the first thing I’ll do when I open a new window, but it’s also a great safety precaution when opening a laptop or running a computer. cmd will close in Windows 8.1 but won’t in Windows 7/8.1. And it’s actually the reason I’ve been using Windows for 15 years now, I’ve never had to deal with this problem.
Its actually the same as the window that closes in the Windows 7 or Vista Windows 7, just a little differently. In each case, when you launch cmd from your taskbar, the command is closed in the same way that a window closes in Windows 7 and Vista. In Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 this wont happen, so the command will remain open, waiting for you to close it again.
It’s not just window closing that cmd wont close. It’s also windows that open. The command is called “run” and the windows that will open when you run cmd will be called “processes”. Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 introduced a new command called “open” that allows you to specify a list of processes that you want to open. This command still works in Windows 7 and Vista.
This is the same as the open command except that it will open all windows that are in the process list, plus the newly created windows that will run when you run cmd.
When you call the shell command open you are telling it to open the Windows Explorer window (or whatever window you want) that you specified. It will also automatically open all files that you have open on your computer. For example, if you have open cmd.exe, it will also open cmd.exe and any other windows that you have open.
The reason that you can’t close cmd.exe is that it will open the window if the window is open and it will not close it. The command that is running at the time when you run cmd.exe is the window you have open and not the command that you are running.
Yeah… and I could not be more dead wrong about this. cmd will close, not open. So if you have cmd open but you want it to close, close cmd.exe. You can also not close cmd.exe if you don’t want it to close. So you can use cmd.exe to run commands but you cannot close it.
Command Prompt is not a command prompt. It’s a command line program that you can use to run commands as if you were typing them on a DOS prompt, and some commands are not able to be typed on the command line. So if you want to run a command through cmd.exe you have to run it using the command prompt, like this: CMD> CMD.
So basically, you can open cmd.exe but you can’t close it.
cmd can be closed when you do not want it to close. This is sometimes not clearly stated, but it is the point of cmd.exe, where you run a command as if you were typing it, but it is not something you close. So if you want to run a command as if you were typing it, you can use cmd.exe. But you can also not close that command.
