You write a bat file:
open notepad
type

c:\windows\sol.exe
c:\windows\notepad.exe
pause

Save your new program as myfile.bat
you can create a shortcut to your new bat file and run it from anywhere.

because your saving it as a text file. Underneath where you put the file name you have to put all file types or something along those lines
