switch in batch file to minimize it when run

I need to know a switch for a batch file that will run the batch minimized. I do not want to create a .pif for this purpose, I need to know if there is a switch that will do it, or a command of some sort that will reside within the batch file itself.

Thanks

Nope, batch files have no knowledge of the GUI and therefore need a PIF to handle their window behaviour.

Have you looked at the windows scripting host?
