Yesterday I had posted about Opening Multiple Files using a Batch File. A user mailed me asking if it was possible to open multiple browsers at once using the same technique. The answer is Yes and here’s how to do so:
Open Notepad and copy and paste the following lines below:
Start "IE" "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe"
Start “Firefox” "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe"
Start "Chrome" "C:\Users\Suprotim\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe"
Start "Safari" "C:\Program Files\Safari\safari.exe"
Save the notepad file with the .bat extension. Now to open all these browsers at once, just execute the .bat file by double clicking it
Note: To know the location of the browser .exe on my machine, I used a simple technique of checking the properties of the browser shortcut and copying the path from the ‘Target’ field. For example: Here’s how the path of the Internet Explorer (IE) .exe can be obtained
