Deleting thousands of files on a network drive. Code: del /s /[d2017-01-01,2017-04-24] *.txt Filenames are scrolling up the screen like mad with a "Deleting X:/path/filename.txt" kind of message for each file. I figure, while that's happening I'll continue working on my other monitor. If I click and hold my left mouse button anywhere, like in this Chrome window where I'm typing, the display in the TCMD window stops until I release the LMB. It does keep deleting in the background.
