Hi, I've been revisiting some of the DOS commands for Powershell scripting and am having a hard time getting the sound to play consistently from the internal speaker; ie, the old beep or ding.
I can type ^G and press enter at the dos prompt and get the sound, but running from a batch file I seem to get the sound once, and then the batch file doesn't work. I've tried @echo ^G and have used Alt-7 (on numpad) to get the large bullet. Both play the sound once, but not a 2nd time from the batch file.
I don't want a program to open, just a sound after the batch file completes.
2nd, I was wondering if there is a Dos command that after a batch file completes, the command will activate the Start Screen? I have some batch files that run from tiles on my start screen, but when finished, end up at the desktop. I'd like them to end up back at the start screen.
Any help on these 2 issues will be greatly appreciated.
