I use start regularly to kick off other command line servers or batch processes to happen in the background. It'd sure help to have an option to not set focus to the new window, but keep focus on the current console. The new consoles have to be visible to see their output and close them if need be so /inv isn't an option. I'm currently using a delay then activate, but it slows down workflow waiting for the returned focus. Before I file a feature request, wanted to make sure I'm not missing something. thanks!
