Good evening,
I am trying to set up my DosBox to open a game automatically instead of having to type in the drive letter, path, and application name. I know it is possible as it was done on an old computer of mine, but now i am trying to mimic what was done and cannot find the answer. Can someone help?

Thank you

Welcome to the forum. 😀

The dosbox.conf file has an [autoexec] section (typically at the end). You can put any list of commands there that you would normally type at the DOSBox commandline, and they will be executed. If the last command there is EXIT, DOSBox will close automatically when your game (or whatever) finishes.

Depending on how you installed DOSBox, the config file will either be inside the DOSBox directory, or there will be a batch file / script to edit it.
