To specify a title for a window from the command line

  1. Create a window.

  2. From a command prompt or from the Run command, type -title text to specify the title for the window.


  • The -800 switch creates an 800 X 600 display window that does not cover the Windows taskbar at the bottom of the screen. You can use it as a standalone command or add it to a program or to a Windows shortcut.
  • This command is ignored if you have specified any default window types in your compiled help file.
  • Client-side command line switches are part of the HTML Help executable program (Hh.exe) and therefore work when HTML Help Workshop is not set up.
