ExtensionSmallImg What is .bat file?

The .bat is a file extension for a batch file format. BAT files are primarily associated with Microsoft’s Batch Processing. A batch file is useful for storing sets of commands for an operating system that are always executed together and so the batch name can simply be entered instead of entering all the commands individually. BAT files can be manually created and edited to automate and perform repetitive tasks easily. They can be written with a basic text editor, such as Notepad, and saved with a ".bat" extension. Batch files are named for the reason that they club commands together into a single file that otherwise would have to be via keyboard one by one. The easiest way to open a BAT file is to double-click on it. BAT files are text files and so they can be easily be opened with any text editor to properly display the file's contents. Alert: This file type can become infected and special care should be taken if this kind of file is received via email or downloaded from unfamiliar websites.
