Create A Batch File That Opens Applications You Choose From A List

In a previous tip, I showed you how to create a batch file to open multiple applications at once.

That batch file works great if you want the same applications to always open at once.

But, what if you have a number of applications that you use frequently, and only want to choose from a list, a certain combination of applications to open at the same time?

For example, you have a book report due and you need to research the material on the Internet. In this case you want to open Microsoft Word and Firefox.

Or, it’s time to pay the bills, and you need to open Notepad, Calculator and Microsoft Excel.
