Bulk Startup application in Windows 7
Some times, when open applications for work is pretty annoying due to there are bunch of application to startup, probably someone will ask: "why not just put all of them in to startup folder" . Yeah, this is the common resolution, but when I get back home and start my PC, I do not need these applicatiions to be start up, which slow my pc. All I need is just my chrome, iron browser and firefox ( yes, all browsers).
To overcome this problem I write a startWorkApps.bat batch file to bulk start my work application:
## bulk start my work applicationsSTART /d "C:\Program Files\SRWare Iron" iron.exeSTART /d "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox" firefox.exeSTART /d "C:\eclipse-SDK-3.6.2-win32\eclipse" eclipse.exeSTART /d "C:\TOOLS" putty.exeSTART /d "C:\Program Files\Notepad++" notepad++.exeSTART /d "C:\Program Files\Pidgin" pidgin.exeSTART /d "C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox" VirtualBox.exe --comment "LinuxMint" --startvm "09ue9s0e9-f2ab-41f0-9774-bdbabc87dbcd"EXIT
Pretty easy isn't it. This script should working seamlessly in Window7. In XP , the script should be in the form of (which I tested doesn't work with Windows7):
START "C:\Program Files\SRWare Iron\iron.exe"
So whenever I go to work, just start my pc, click startWorkApps.bat, everything ready after bancuh my Milo :-)
