Batchrun is a free batch files launcher that enables the user to create Windows batch files with ease. Windows batch files are those that contain a series of commands that are executed by a specific interpreter. In short they are used for automating many frequently executed commands. This process of creating batch scripts is a tedious process and it requires the user to have a fair bit of knowledge about scripting languages and working in the DOS prompt. This could become quite difficult for new users and this is where this free batch files launching app comes to the rescue.

Further, Batchrun allows the user to control the startup and execution behavior of the batch files that are created.
Batchrun’s file management functions allow the user to control the execution, apart from starting them. The user can control the behavior of the batch files in execution and set them to priority or run modes at any point of time. For example the user can start an application and make it run with a higher priority. Also the processes can be made to run in the background.
The basic commands include, deltree, rename, mkdir, kill process, end process, text to clipboard.
The batch files that are created can be run in 2 ways:
