I have a long-running, CPU-intensive job that I want to run with low priority. This is easily done in a Windows 7 batch file with START /LOW.
The only problem is that it starts a separate window which is the default width for a command window, which is very narrow, less than half the width of one monitor, which makes it harder to read the results than I would like. (I have set the properties of the command window shortcut so that it normally starts a wider window, but that isn't getting applied in this context.)
How can I cause the long-running job to run in a wide command window? I have tried START /LOW /B to run the low priority job within the current window, but that leaves the process associated with the job still hanging around even after the job finishes, which messes things up.
