How to run multiple selected applications at once ?

Hello ! I.m using Windows 7 Ultimate, and I have a big problem with it in my every day tasks. I am trying to select 2,3,4 etc. applications and start them but Windows only starts one of the selected applications. The same with shortcuts, I have to start 20 shortcuts at once. Batch file, the same not working.

Tryed everything, searched everywhere with no answer, maybe some of you know about this issue and can help me.
Thanks a lot !

Add a shortcut for each of your applications to your STARTUP folder.

Go to START>ALL PROGRAMS

Right click the STARTUP entry and select OPEN or OPEN ALL USERS

Drag and Drop a COPY of each application shortcut into the STARTUP folder.

If you want them to start minimized, right click each shortcut copy , select properties and modify to suit your tastes.

Thanks a lot for the reply but I don.t want them in the startup. In Windows XP I had a .bat file and there where all names of the shortcuts. Double clicking the .bat file was opening all those shortcuts. In Windows 7 when I double click the .bat file it opens me the first shortcut then it stops. If I close the first shortcut opened, it opens me the second one and so on ... I don.t know why this happens .... Maybe the bat mode in Windows 7 is different, maybe a command switch I don't know ..

Oh.....

Create a shortcut for each app with the propertie you want.

Create a .BAT file. Insert a 1 line command for each shortcut I.E. (for x86 apps).....

rundll32 shell32.dll,ShellExec_RunDLL "C:\Users\Public\Desktop\Sound Forge 9.0.lnk"
rundll32 shell32.dll,ShellExec_RunDLL "C:\Users\Public\Desktop\CD Architect 5.2.lnk"

I have not tried 64 bit apps but it will be similar (delete the 32????).

Try it report back.....
