HI,

Can someone show me am example on how to create a batch file,
that I can just keep on my desktop, and double click so as to load half a dozen apps? (ie through notepad)

I would like to load say 2 windows of Internet Explorer ( 2 different url's ) and a few apps running from C drive, and some server's...

Thanks

Try putting quotes around the path and file name, it'll work much better. :) Without quotes, the first space terminates that command for DOS, and that's why it can't find the file. For example:

START "C:\Program Files\CyberLink\PowerDVD\PowerDVD.exe"
