Dos Screen DISAPPEARING

hI
DOES ANYONE KNOW HOW TO STOP THE DOS SCREEN FROM DISAPPEARING eg If you run chkdsk it will run through its tasks and then bang its gone,you dont have time to read it I tried running it from a batch file same result,I put /pause after it and just pause it did not run
This applies to all.exe files and also to Sysinternal files tried running thier commands goodbye screen.I know if I open a command prompt for any of these executables they wont disappear but this a slow cumbersome way especially for the Sysinternals suite.I checked help at the command prompt and it said you can use pause in a batch file but I dont know how.Can any one help.I am the administrator on my computer
thank you

Use cmd /K and then the command.

Ex: for chkdsk /F command to run in Command window and keep command window after chkdsk finishes....
Enter cmd /K chkdsk /F in Run dialog box (Windows key+R)

Ptwd,

I use programs from the SysInternals suite quite frequently and do not encounter your problem.

Run cmd as administrator and enter the command from the command line prompt.

| type CMD | do NOT hit Enter | do Right-click on CMD in the resulting Program list | select Run as administrator | reply to any prompts

now type, as an example:
contig -s -v c:\sysinternalssuite

You will see the results and they will be there when contig finishes.

For viewing hte results of check disk, we even have a tutorial:
