Hi,

I'm trying to open multiple websites using DOS command script like below. The problem is that all the websites were opening in multiple windows of internet explorer but as i'm using internet explorer 8, i want to open all those websites  in multiple tabs within same window.

 Please let me know whether it is possible to do or any best way to do it


@start "" /b "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" http://shjdocweb1:8080/da
@start "" /b "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" http://shjdocweb2:8080/webto
@start "" /b "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" http://shjdocweb3:8080/da
@start "" /b "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" http://dmt003aaashjuae:8080/da
@start "" /b "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" http://10.100.169.33:8080/webtop

FYI, to make the batch script works you must set IE as default browser, otherwise the first url will be open by IE and the rest of them by your default browser

the "ping localhost -n 2 > nul" is just a harmless timer so that all the pages have time to open..
