If you do something everyday on your computer that involves dozens of steps, then it makes sense to automate that task through the use of batch scripts, macro recorders or other means. We can write a program to carry out such repetitive tasks automatically or use scripting languages such as AutoIt or WinBatch to take care of them. The scripting languages like WinBatch are much easier and takes only a little time to automate any task on Windows. WinBatch scripting needs to be learned to get yourself started, but it does not have a huge learning curve.
WinBatch is very small but it allows you to automate many tasks performed in Windows. Using WinBatch, we can create special scripts that perform repetitive and monotonous tasks as well as assign various actions to selected key combinations.
WinBatch is available in many editions. A trial version of WinBatch is available for 21 days free trial after which it stops working unless you buy a license for WinBatch. This trial version does not contain a compiler which can be used to create standalone EXE files that do not depend on WinBatch to be installed. Without the compiler we can create only WBS (WinBatch Script) files which depend on the WinBatch program in order to run.
WinBatch comes with a nice script editor of its own using which we can create new WinBatch script files or modify the source code. These WBS scripts can be used for almost anything on a Windows PC, for example, to copy files, to visit a website, to automate printing, sending e-mails, downloading files or cleaning the computer during our absence. We will save the finished scripts as executable files.
WinBatch allows you to assign keyboard shortcuts to any of the supported tasks, for example, cleaning the hard drive, pasting text snippets, sending files over a network or viewing hard disk parameters. It can save your time everyday and complete your tasks really fast.
