Windows 7: Open all applications at once?

Open all applications at once?

In Mac OS X, I can simply select all of the applications that I'd like to start, right-click>Open, and they'll all open. In Windows, I can only open a few at a time it seems... I've been relying on manually making a batch file to run a set number of applications. The reason I'm doing this is to see how long it takes to open the applications. I have a SSD and I'd like to just compare the speed. Is there an easier way of doing this?

Tons of workarounds.

Put a link to each app you want to open in the start up folder, or do the same thing you would in OS-X

If it is going to be an on going thing right click and edit the properties on how and where you want it to start. etc
