Chapter 4. Using the DOS Shell > Using the Task Swapper

Using the Task Swapper

The DOS Shell also has the capability to load more than one program at a time. DOS accomplishes this feat through a technique called task swapping. To activate this feature, choose Enable Task Swapper from the Options menu. The Shell adds an active task list area to the window (see Figure 4.30). Initially, nothing is listed in this area because no program (other than the Shell) is active.
