Batch File

Batch file is a script file in DOS, OS/2 and Microsoft Windows operating systems that stores a list of commands to be run in sequence. These files use the .bat extension. They help automate frequently executed tasks, like launching one or more programs sequentially, renaming files in a batch or performing maintenance operations. Batch files can also accept arguments from the user that are passed to the script when executed. This simplicity makes them useful for setting up jobs that can be triggered by schedules or events on a computer system without requiring manual intervention each time they need to be run.
