Use system 1, q[start your.html];

    Thanks! I was just about to post that I had managed to find a solution using system(1, "start /B /MIN cmd /c file.html") and was going to ask if anyone knew where these command switches were documented, as I am not certain what /B or /c are doing.
      "start /B /MIN cmd /c file.html" ... anyone knew where these command switches were documented,

      Hm. You should not need any switches -- for a start [sic] /b (no new window) and /min (minimise new window) are contradictory.

      As a Windows user, you should be familiar with /?, it works with most of the windows commands.
