Batch files are the computer handyman’s way of getting things done. They can automate everyday tasks, shorten the required time to do something, and translate a complex process into something anyone could operate. So you can make a batch file to make multiple apps launch at once. This file will contain paths to your apps. When you double-click and run this batch file, it will launch all your apps one by one.
Besides, you can set a shortcut key to the batch file to quickly launch it.
