Running IE from the command line


Here’s a simple way you can run Internet Explorer from the command line:


Create a new text file that contains the following line:



@start “” /b “C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe” %*


Rename the file e.bat


Copy this file to your profile folder C:\Documents and Settings\your_account_name


Now you can open a command prompt window and type the following:



e www.mtit.com


This will start Internet Explorer and open the URL for www.mtit.com (my own website) or any other URL you specify.
