Introduction: Batch File Tutorial 1

This is my first Instructable so cut me some slack this picture thing is confusing. OK so first this is for ABSOLUTE BEGINNERS.
In this tutorial we will be covering 4 commands: @echo off, echo, title, and pause. ( I don't know whats wrong with the pictures please help.

Step 1: Start

Ok to start out make a new folder called Batch inside that make 2 folders, one called Tutorials and one called Pranks. Then open a text editor like notepad or notepad++ (i recommend notepad for beginners, notepad++ s good but has way to many options.) Then type in it:

@echo off
title First Batch File
echo This is my first batch file!
pause

Now if you want to know what these do continue reading if not just go to the next step.

@echo off hides the code from showing up when you run the program
title sets the title on the tab window. this can be anything
echo displays a message this can also be anything
pause displays "Press any key to continue..." and waits until you press a key to do anything else.

Step 2: Saving

Ok to save it go to file save as, then change the name to First-Batch-File.bat (MAKE SURE YOU PUT .BAT)  and save it in your tutorials folder, we will pick up on this next time. (in my picture i have a folder called code notes you can do this if you want.)

Step 3: Extra

If you want you can try something like this:

@echo off
title Pause
echo 1
pause
echo 2
pause
echo 3

see what is does.

Hello, you may have seen some of my other comments on other member's intructables. Basically, I proofread your text, offer suggestions and just basically point out your mistakes and ways to improve. Don't take anything personally.

Firstly, this instrucatble is very short and lacks depth that other tutorials show. Why should people come to yours if you only teach them four codes? Try adding more to increase your popularity (I know this isn't a popularity contest).

Secondly, in "Step 1", there is a tiny typo. In the first paragraph, under the picture, on the last line you forgot to add the "i" in "is" and instead wrote "is". Again, this is minor but your should fix it anyway.

Also, at the end of the intro, you didn't add a closing parenthesis to the sentence. Tiny mistake but you don't want to give any foot holes to people who want to make your life hard.

A tip, perhaps you should tell the viewers that most, if not all, codes can be both uppercase and lowercase. This should effectively avoid some confusion later on in life.

If you haven't made a part 2 already, then when you do you should add a link to it so you don't have to search it.

I could point out more grammatical errors but most of these are minor and unimportant. Later you could stamp these out but the main thing to focus on now is clarity. An in-depth tutorial is a good tutorial.

I wish you all of luck on your next instructable and I am looking forward to seeing more of your work.

I will delete this comment at your request.
