A Trick

This is a trick that I found useful when working on Windows command line (cmd): it is a way to run a job, say, `emacs`, at the background, thus mimics Unix/Linux’s `emacs &` behavior.

And it is the command `start /B emacs` that gets the job done.
Explanation:
– `start` starts a separate window to run a specified program or command.
– The ‘/B’ switch starts application without creating a new window.
