First-time user of Windows 8.

I use batch files a lot. My batch files have many lines. Problem is that a new COMMAND window is opened with every line in the batch file. This interferes with other programs I am running. This did not happen under W7.

How can I correct this so that all lines in a batch file run in the same command window?

If you open a cmd window first and type in the batch file name to execute it, does it do the same thing?

Solved:

Right-click the Command shortcut.
Click Properties.
Click the Shortcut tab
Click the Advanced button
Select "Run as Administrator"
Click the OK button
Click the OK button again.

From now on, use this shortcut to run batches.
