“Eclecticism, (from Greek eklektikos, “selective”), in philosophy and theology, the practice of selecting doctrines from different systems of thought without adopting the whole parent system for each doctrine.” – Encyclopaedia Britannica.
Hah! haven’t seen that before. When you press any key on the batch file, the window closes and DTI regains the focus and the keypress is apparently sent to DTI as well.
I would say that’s a bug in the command shell interpreter. I would expect it to consume whatever key is pressed as a result of the Pause command but apparently it doesn’t. The key remains in the keyboard buffer ready to be used by whatever program gains focus next.
I don’t have a solution. Let me know if you come up with anything.
I ran into this same issue and was glad to find on here I wasn’t going crazy. My workaroud for the issue was to set a blank Control button at the top of my desktopinfo.ini pointed at clip.exe so it doesn’t launch anything.
