Hey!

I need help with a relatively simple thing. I've been searching for a solution online but nothing works for me.
I just want to make a script which will run a certain program. That program is Google Chrome. What command do I need to type in in order to run Chrome by running the script file?

Thank you for reading!

You should be able to launch a program by including the filename and directory path in your batch file. For Chrome the command line will look something like this:
Code:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe"

Or you can launch the same with start command like this:
Code:
start "" "C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe"

In both cases, remember to enclose the directory path and filename in double quotes (""). The double quotes allows filenames and directory paths to include space characters in the name.
