It's not entirely clear what you're asking for, but if I got it right, you have to read the documentation of the target program.

Arbitrary command line parameters can be passed to any program, but it's ultimately up to each program to decide what to do with them, like opening it in a particular state or carrying on some specific action. It may also be possible that the software you're running doesn't support this at all.

If possible, and if so, how to do it depends on the specific program. There is no rule or convention at all. Its documentation will have the definitive answer.

Hi, Thanks for the reply.\
I am referring to the program kitty.exe
i configured my user password and auto command to open it to open the router status page of my router thro ssh connection.
if i schedule the task , it opens of the program interface and stops at it.
I want to execute the Start tab in the interface to get what i want.
i give auto command show status, which opens the page in command prompt

i did it but forget to take o copy of batch file.
i had done the task to open the start tab automatically at every one hour, so that i could view the router status , download and upload speed at every one hour.
the program worked fine , but due to some progblem, i had to reinstall the windows and everything gone off.
i could open the exe as per the tutorial on task scheduler.
but i want to click the START tab to get, which i want to avoid.
I will enclose the screen shot so that you could get a idea of it

Hello

It is not entirely clear what you want to do. I think you want to lanuch a GUI-based program from Task Scheduler?

You can do this with Task Scheduler, but the arguments need to come from the GUI-program. There are no specific Task-Scheduler-arguments for controlling GUI program.

That is, if you want to open a GUI-based program, and then switch window, tab or context within the GUI-program, you wont be able to do that with arguments, unless the program writers have provided the parameters in the first place.

If you want to automate a GUI-program, then I imagine you could create a macro using Auto Hotkey (or similar), and use that to change window, tab or context within your GUI-based program. So, my solution would be to schedule your GUI-based program, then schedule an Auto-Hotkey macro to run immediatelyu afterwards. Does that help?

I think you create a startup session file, and launch kitty with the startup file specified as an argument.

That link did not quite work as intended. Click the link, and navigate to"Startup Sessions"

I'll have a look for you. I am not an Auto Hotkey user, so I do not pretend that I know that the solution is a workable one.
