Not sure about W3.11 but in W95 you can make 'batch submit' the default action when 'double-clicking' the mouse by the following... open the folder containing a sas program file (?.sas) click on the View option and select Options click on the File Types option and select the entry for Sas System Program click on Edit and select Batch Submit from the list click on Set Default After this every time you 'double-click' on a file with extension .sas then SAS will open and run the program in batch mode.

Selecting other options will enable you to change to other default actions.

Hope this helps... David --
