"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.
