c:\> start "c:\program files" (Pops useless command prompt window at default directory)
That's because the optional first argument to start is a window title.
If the first argument begins with ", then it is taken as a title -- take a look at the titlebar of that useless command prompt window.
To disable that effect, prefix the directory with a dummy title:start "" "c:\program files"
With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
