Windows 7: I'd like to write a script to turn off shuffle in Windows Media Player

18 Mar 2015   #11

Windows 10, Windows 8.1 Pro, Windows 7 Professional, OS X El Capitan

Aside from a small error message, there is no "ill" effect if you ran, say, taskkill /im ehshell.exe and the WMC process did not exist to be killed in the first place.

You can suppress an error message produced by a command by redirecting StdErr (stream 2) to NUL:
taskkill /im WMPlayer.exe 2>NUL
If Windows Media Player doesn't exist, and you run the above command, no error message will display.

You may type help if or if /? into a command prompt to view help information for the if command.
