how can i stop a batch file closing once completed?

by that i mean return to c:\ and wait there rather than the pause function?

e.g batch file will run then keep command window open at c:\ ??

any ideas?

If you set the property on your console window to full screen, it will load that way the next time (assuming you tell windows to remember it when it asks).
