Running an DOS program or shortcut leaves a Window on your screen which must be closed to clear all signs of the program from your screen. This can be helpful if the program displays output, but does not pause. In most cases though it can be a nescience. To get rid of these windows create a DOS shortcut whose settings will apply to all new ones using these steps and modify it to include the Close on exit setting in the program tab.
