open multiple=If you work with multiple programs at once you know how boring is to run and launch them one by one! In fact, you need to find them among the other applications you have installed on your Windows 7 or Vista, click their  icons and wait for them to open. This operation is quite consuming if you ask me! That’s why you  need a special shortcut (batch file) able to start all of them in one click! The trick I am going to show you will let you achieve a great, time saving result. Opening numerous applications in a matter of a couple seconds!  Stop browsing your computer folders, stop looking for the right icon. Manage everything from the same place.

  1. Click Start.
  2. Click All Programs.
  3. Click Accessories.
  4. Click Notepad to open it.
  5. Now write the following code:
  6. Start “” (make sure to leave a space before and after “”) followed by the complete path of the program you wish to open in quote. Here is a clear example: Start “” “C:\Users\YourName\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe”

  7. Right after that press Enter and write another line like the one above in order to open a new application.
  8. Make sure to write each Start “” command on a new line so that a line will contain a Start “” command only, otherwise the batch file won’t work and you won’t be able to open multiple programs!
  9. Now save the file with any name you wish and make sure to save it as .bat extension (and NOT as .txt).

Note: If you do not know the complete path of an application on your computer, right click its icon located on the desktop – Propierties – copy aht path located in the Destination field.

    Reminds me of the old DOS days, pre-Windows. But then Win is just a big GUI anyway, isn’t it? One important thing you left out though is how to actually find and use the .bat file. I believe an article extension is needed here.
