Opening different types of office files at once
Apr 4, 2010, 11:31 AM
I have to open various types of office files at once to mark students work.
In XP i would just highlight all the files and press enter but under windows 7 i can only open one type of office file at a time.
This is a pain when i have 3 publisher, 2 powerpoint, a spreadsheet and 4 word docs to open.
I have searched under folder options but does anybody know of a setting to change to allow it?
I cant believe Microsoft could be so stupid as to offer less functionality over xp in this aspect!

The only thing I can think of is to create a batch file to do the job.
Here's a link for help on how to construct such a file:
