Have you ever wanted to echo a blank line in your batch files? Well, all you need to do is to add a dot or period (without any spaces) after the ECHO command as shown in the tenth line of the example below.
TITLE IP Information v1.0
echo IP Information v1.0
echo (A) Retrieve the IP Information.
echo (B) Prints the IP Information.
echo * Be sure the default printer is on.
If you had just type the ECHO command alone without the dot or period in line ten, it would have displayed the current echo setting (ie. ON or OFF) to the display. While on the Command Prompt, you can utilize a parameter to retrieve a list of ECHO Commands.
