Thanks, that helped.
I tested with "Win+R run emacs-w32 ENTER" but better to have wrapper to
run(1) man page explains some details:
run - start programs with hidden console window
Windows programs are either GUI programs or console programs. When
started console programs will either attach to an existing console or
create a new one. GUI programs can never attach to an exiting console.
There is no way to attach to an existing console but hide it if started
as GUI program.
run will do this for you. It works as intermediate and starts a program
but makes the console window hidden.
