Information on batch files
Batch files allow MS-DOS and Microsoft Windows users to write a series of commands to run in order upon their execution for automating frequently performed tasks. For example, a batch file could be used to run frequently utilized commands, delete or move a series of files, and other jobs.
One of the earliest batch files was the autoexec.bat, which is a boot batch file loaded each time the computer started MS-DOS and early versions of Windows. A simple batch file does not require any special programming skills and can be created by users with a basic understanding of MS-DOS commands.
