Hello users, if I want to open a window but search like this?
//waitwindowsopen> *: \ Windows \ System32 \ cmd.exe
Let>titwin=*: \ Windows \ System32 \ cmd.exe
¿The asterist forward can be done? or what solution do I have?

The asterisk in the window functions means "find the text preceding the asterisk ANYWHERE within the title". So this WILL find your match:

Code: Select all

The asterisk just means "do a substring search and don't care where the text is".

HOWEVER, if you WANT more control you can use RegEx. E.g.

Code: Select all
