I do not visit instructables anymore, and you will get a faster response that way.
Hey Guys! Tam Nguyen here. It's been a long time coming, but it's here now! I present to you the next instalment of my Batch Tutorials!
You may (or may not) have read my other instructables:
Basics of Batch

This Instructable borrows some elements from the first two Instructables. Namely:

By the end of this Instructable, you will be intimate with:
> and >> Parameters
With these commands, you will be able to make dynamic batch files which can change according to user input, and create and expand.
So let's open up that good 'ol Command Prompt and get started!
Run -> cmd
Alternatively, you can go to:
Start->Program Files->Accessories->Command Prompt
My explainations in this instructable got a little long, so I've split up some commands into more than one page mainly for aesthetic purposes; I liked seeing the pictures while reading the text without having to scroll up and down.

Step 1: START Command
It's a simple command, and will help us warm up before we get to the harder commands.
The parameters of the command are exactly what you think they are.
START ThingToBeStarted.exePretty simple.
START WMPlayer.exeNot only can you START .exe's, you can also type a website in, and it will open up in your default browser!
START www.Instructables.comPretty easy, eh? Ok. Now let's move on to the real meat of the Instructable: SET Command.
