Yes, hey, hello well I came across this video a while ago and although what I'm after isn't linked to the main point of the video, for my own testing purposes I would like to be able to do this myself also the Office only one would be helpful too.

Ok here's the video, (please watch from 2:03 to 2:45) :



So there it is, I would like one that just opens all of office and one that opens everything in the start menu as shown in the video. I think he's uses a couple of batch files hell this could even be a command built into windows I don't myself know about, I do think it's custom though (a batch or app he wrote himself)

Quite interesting video anyway I'll think you'll agree despite It's age and lol that's doable with only 4 SSD's now as well lol ahh, can't wait till SSD's go mainstream, though I accept it will be a while.

Alright well this would be helpful but I think if I wanted to launch every app in the start menu at the same time I would essentially have to type out all the execution commands for every single application or program, which er well guys? this isn't really an option consider all the built in windows app's as well as what I have installed myself. It would take me too long, too long for me to consider doing.

bb-bump, (first and last I promise)
