    How can i run a hidden cmd script?


    Im running a script that organises my downloaded files,but opens a cmd prompt everytime.
    Is it possible to hide this in Windows 8? I know it was possible in windows 7 but doesn't seem to work on 8
    Any help would be great, thanks

    What's the script and how did you manage to hide the CMD in Win7?

    In case this is helpful:
    I believe you can run BAT files in task scheduler without the CMD window popping up by setting the task to run with highest privileges. Perhaps the same thing will work for a script, whatever it may be. If the script is calling on a BAT file or running commands, there may be a way to run them at a higher privilege?
