When I type:
start funny picture.jpg
in the command prompt it says cannot find file 'funny' If I say:
start "funny picture.jpg"
it only opens another command prompt with funny picture.jpg as the window's title.

How can I open a file with a space in the name?

Hi,
Welcome to TSF.

Type the command as follows:

Start "" "Funny Picture.jpg"


The first set of quotes ("") sets the title (for the window, this is what the start command expects for quotes normally), then the second set around the file name allows the space.
