Command: lh (loadhigh)

  LH loads a program into the upper memory area.
  Since LH loads the program into high memory there remains 
  more free space in low or conventional memory for other 
  programs.
  LH is a BATCH-FILE / AUTOEXEC.BAT command.
  It can also be used in command line.

                Specifies the region(s) of memory into which to load 
                the program.  Region1 specifies the number of the first 
                memory region; minsize1 specifies the minimum size, if 
                any, for region1.  Region2 and minsize2 specify the number 
                and minimum size of the second region, if any.  You can 
                specify as many regions as you want.
  /S            Shrinks a UMB to its minimum size while the program is
                loading.
  /?            Shows the help

Comments:

  LH can also be used outside a batch file.
  To load up a driver or a program into high memory you first
  have to load a driver like HIMEM, HIMEMX or JEMMEX in CONFIG.SYS.
  You can also use LOADHIGH instead of LH.
  LH is a command internal to command.com 
  and needs no other file in order to work.
