Make DOS Ask For Parameters

Usually DOS batch files will require certain parameters for it. But do you know you can make DOS ask for it in Windows? Create a shortcut to the selected batch file or any other DOS app. Right-click and select Properties. Click on the Program tab and add a ? at the end of the path in the Cmd Line field. When you run the program from the shortcut, it will open a parameter window where you can type the variable information.
