Batch script: how to make and write one in Windows

Another way of getting the job done other than utilizing tasks in Windows are batch scripts. Batch scripts are a collection of command-line operations stitched together into a single executable file(.bat). In some cases, a batch script is needed to execute programs that require arguments to be defined. You no longer need to open up the commend prompt and write out the command in its entirety every time, this helps save an abundant amount of time.

Automating tasks has never been easier in Windows. Task Scheduler allow you to set certain conditions resulting in an action. We can open a certain program every time we do something such as when your computers boots up to the desktop, or a user/specific user logs onto their computer. This also makes doing simple maintenance on your computer easy and worry-free, done are the days of having to manually run a piece of software to check your system files for corruption or maybe your hard drive needs to be defragged weekly. There’s a solution for everything.
