Have you ever gotten tired of having a bunch of shortcuts all over your desktop slowing down your computer, and making a mess of it, but like the ability to open up programs quickly and easily? If you're like me, and use icons in your start menu, do you hate clicking start, then finding your app, clicking it to start it, and repeat for your other apps?

Well, for some of you, you know me enough to know that I am lazy, and if I could automate something, I will. This video tutorial, I go over how to code a single batch file to open up multiple programs like, TeamSpeak 3, Discord, and Steam with one click.

I know I say this in the video, but I will put it here. I know you can have it start up when I start my PC, but I don't always want that, so I DON'T DO THAT.




Here is the code:
** USE THIS ONLY FOR AN EXAMPLE, YOUR FILE PATHS MORE & LIKELY DIFFER **

Code: [ Select all ]

@echo off

cd /d "C:\Users\YOURNAME\AppData\Local\Discord"
Update.exe --processStart Discord.exe

cd /d "D:\Program Files (x86)\Steam"
start steam.exe

cd /d "D:\Program Files\TeamSpeak 3 Client"
start ts3client_win64.exe

exit

Thanks. I know many people will not use this, but, I do know besides me, there was one other that felt the same, so I put this together for anyone else that felt the same.
