    When I right-click to create a new tab window, I get a context menu, with the options New Tab, Run, Attach Tabs

    I select run, and am presented with the Run Program dialogue.

    For command line, I type notepad.exe

    I choose Start in a New Tab, and click Ok.

    Works like a charm. So, I close said tab by clicking on the X in the newly created tab.

    I try to do the same thing from the command line. I type;

    start "Test" /tab notepad.exe

    start /tab notepad.exe
    Notepad is started "like" a tab window, but with no tab or tab label created, as it did when using the dialog as above.

    The only way to switch to Notepad is to alt-tab, or click on Notepad in the Windows Taskbar.

    What am I missing to duplicate this from the command line?

    Thanks from Joe.
