BatLaunch

BatLaunch is a windows console app written in C#. When executed, it looks for the file batlaunch.bat in the .bat subfolder of batlaunch.exe and executes it.

Motivation

I wanted to put a shortcut in the Windows Taskbar and/or the Windows Start Screen but I could not find an easy way to do that.

Maybe a registry hack could accomplish what I wanted, but I tend to avoid registry hacks (most of the time).

Use

  • Make as many folders as you need containing batlaunch.bat with a .bat subfolder.
  • Prepare and place your batlaunch.bat file in the .bat subfolder.
  • Create a shortcut for batlaunch.exe
    • Name it anything you please.
    • Change the shortcut icon as desired.
  • Place the shorcut on either the
    • Task Bar
    • Windows Start Screen
    • Desktop or any other folder
