Sort-of Missing Switch for START in Help

#3
I noticed that too (before reading your post).

Does START /DESKTOP work for you?
Nope. I created a new desktop, thus;

Code:
desktop /c jlc
desktop by itself shows;

Code:
jlc
Default
Disconnect
Winlogon
When I do;

Code:
start /desktop=jlc sol.exe
Solitaire starts in my Default desktop, not in jlc desktop.

I switch to

Code:
desktop jlc
and no solitaire.

I've not started a new desktop, but my desktop list is
Code:
Default
Disconnect
Winlogon
My guess is that I have to log into my computer when I get to work and the two extra desktops are part of the whole corporate network thing.

My OS is XP SP3 32 bit and I'm logged in as non-admin.

Interesting! I've never seen "Disconnect" and "Winlogon" listed among the desktops. What's your OS and admin status?
Note also that when I create a new desktop using Desktops from SysInternals, I get the following;

Code:
Sysinternals Desktop 1
Default
Disconnect
Winlogon
Just like the desktop command from TCC, there is no way to close a desktop once it has been created, other than logging off. (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/cc817881.aspx)
