Certificate renewal console popup

I am on windows, with xamppp as server, and my certificates are automatically renewed.

Problem is : every day the console popup for a fraction of a second, tabbing me out of my work / games.
I can’t afford the risk or getting tabbed out when I work (Or game… not c00l).

How can I make it run in backgroup instead?

Thank you <3

Perhaps?

No because it’s not a notification, it’s a script being started by Certbot (In a console)
So a console pop up and then close almost instantly, but still causes tab out everywhere

I’m not a Windows user, but I’m reading on a number of different websites that checking “Run whether user is logged on or not” in the Scheduled Task will cause the task to run outside of your desktop context, meaning no console will appear.

Not sure if that’s true or not, but you can give it a try.

Edit: filed a feature request for you.

Try:

I think it used to be referred to as “run interactively” - but that might be back when “task scheduler” was just the “AT” command.

I instead changed something to >Run when idle after 1 hour
Because I never close my PC, apache is on it.

Hi @AuracleTech

then that script is wrong.

There are some flags of the start command.

Check

start /?

and add the /min flag on the correct place.

PS: Normally, it’s good not to use that flag. If the job doesn’t work, that may be hidden.

That might work…
You need to confirm that with “when last run” if it is being run (while you are not there).
If not, using a separate user should keep that from popping up even while you are logged in.
