I have a lnk to a bat file that opens a minimized window when ran. It works fine.

However if I create a task in Task Scheduler by doing cmd /c "C:\...\task.bat.lnk", it no longer opens in minimized mode. How to fix?

    Schedule the batch file using the start command. See start /?. Note first set of quotes are interpreted as the Window title. Start is an internal command of cmd.exe. So cmd /c start "Title" /min "C:\...\task.bat". Nov 20, 2021 at 17:56
