For me it does nothing other than report the error...

Error on line: # - File not found.

Can you run a cmd window and type:

<Ctrl>G<return>

does that beep?

It does Beep but I suspect that it is only error notification of '' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

n.b. Shell "calc " & Chr(7), 2 opens the calculator so the Shell command performs OK it just baulks at echo.

OK - but at least that shows the beep capability is there.

In the cmd window type:

help

you should get a list of all the internal commands - is echo in there?

alternatively you could just try:

echo <Ctrl>G<return>

if not - it looks like echo is not an internal command in W10
