View Full Version : MS-DOS Prompt

Had to re-install Win 2000 Pro because of a virus problem. Everything now seems to run Ok except the DOS Prompt shortcut on the desktop doesn't work anymore. Doubleclicking on the icon brings up the DOS screen momentarily - then it disappears.Any ideas?
Thanks.

Check the properties of the shortcut. In the old days you could choose a checkbox something like 'close on exit'. On the program tab, it is. Turn it off, you should.
Talk like Yoda, I do.

Sorry,

Lets get this right - there is no 'DOS prompt' in Windows 2000! DOS does not exist in Windows NT - it is called the command prompt.
