    Is there anyway to make a menu in DOS that allows you to just press the option you want and it goes to it without you haveing to press enter. EX:

    echo 1. +Programs
    echo 2. +Graphics
    echo 3. +Games
    echo 4. +Music
    echo 5. Notepad
    echo 6. Exit
    set /P CH="Choice: "
    if "%CH%"=="1" goto Programs
    if "%CH%"=="2" goto Graphics
    if "%CH%"=="3" goto Games
    if "%CH%"=="4" goto Music
    if "%CH%"=="5" "%SystemRoot%\system32\notepad.exe"
    if "%CH%"=="6" exit
    goto Mainl

    Now is there a way to just hit 1 for option 1 and it goes there?
    I cant use the choice command because I have XP. Thank in advance.

    in a DOS batch file there are different programs available ... some will look for "key entered" (and then "enter key pressed") ... others will look for "key touched" ...

    you might also consider looking at DOS batch file programming ... the "if" statement to determine what key sequence has been pressed ... (look for key scan codes as well as key codes) ...
