    Hello, how can I save whole content of console window without adding ">>savetothisfile.txt" at end of every command line?
    Is there any method to add just one line at end to save whole cmd window output?

    How about:

    Code:
    doskey /history > C:\saved.txt
    :eek:
     
    Stop hovering to collapse... Click to collapse... Hover to expand... Click to expand...

    It should display any history from current cmd, can you show me what you are doing ? ;)

    EDIT: I don't think this is the answer your looking for..

    Another is add this before any command:

    Code:
    copy con c:\save.txt
    not enter your content..

    This may or may not be wot your looking for :)

    AFIK this isn't possible unless you call the first batch file from a command adding the ">>savetothisfile.txt"

    do you have @echo off as the first command in your batch file?
