Run HELP command ( /? ) does not stay open

A fantastic thread, Thank you for the list of run commands. Very helpful

Problem. When I run a command, say ROBOCOPY /? to see its parameters, the window does not stay open. How do you get the window to stay open?

Hello gypsycomp, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Run it in a command prompt instead, and it will stay open.

Windows 7 Professional 64bit

Way after the fact but I just came upon this after googling "msc commands". I'm making a PDF and saving it. Oh so helpful when I need to get under the hood. And just as pertinent now, six years later. OK so Win 7 is supposed to be dead or dying but it's not leaving any of my machines soon so... Anyway, thanks!
