Re: NVDA Portable Start


Thats a problem really.
Yeah, there is no way to actually do this with aditional mucking about.
You can use nircmd or other program to run your batch file.

alt space
type c.

I have a portable copy of "NVDA on a thumb drive in a folder called
NVDA211. It contains NVDA version 2021.1. When I shut down my
installed NVDA, switch to the thumb drive and execute a batch file that
starts the portable version, it starts in a command mode that does not
accept commands; nor will it exit back to windows. This does not seem
normal to me. Wonder how I can make it stay in windows when I start the
