Auto-launch Papermoney

Hi All,

I'm trying to find a way to automatically launch papermoney thinkorswim and/or live trading. I find myself only concentrating on live trading because I don't know how to open up papertrading in a separate Window.

This is on Windows 7/10 by the way.
Is there a way to set up a command line script with some switches to launch into paper money?

Thanks in advance!

Once you have one instance open, shift click or click on the mouse scroll wheel on the application icon to start another instance to run more than one. You can have one be live and the other paper.
