Step 1: Basic Instructions

Hello, instead of the regular instructable, i will give you a file. copy and paste it into notepad, and save it as HOW 2.0.bat . open it and it will have everything you need, including a shortcut to open notepad. It has all of the basics for standard batch programming, and step by step instructions to get you along.

Step 2: File To Copy

Click on the link below to view the file outline. Copy EVERYTHING, it is very important. Once you have copied it open up notepad. Paste it and save it as HOW 2.0.bat. Make sure to include the .bat because it is what makes the file work. Once you have saved it, open the gear icon on your desktop.

Step 3: Final Note

This is a great Instructable, but you need to add a main image of the final project to the intro step. Please do that and leave me a message when you have so that we can publish your work. Thanks!

Hello, and welcome to the Instructables community! It's great that you've decided to tell the world about something you've made by publishing an Instructable. We just wanted to let you know that your project still needs a little more work if you want it to be well received on Instructables. Projects that don't include certain basic elements tend not to get the attention that they deserve, and so we'd love for you to check out the list below of what makes a successful Instructable. Successful projects on Instructables include: - clearly written details of a finished project with instruction - as many steps as are necessary to explain your project - clear images that you took of your project for most, if not all of your steps - an intro image - proper spelling and grammar - appropriate cautions or safety considerations I'll give you another opportunity to make any final changes to your project before we publish it. Once you're all set to go, please republish your project and send me a quick comment letting me know that you've made some changes. I'll give it a quick final check to make sure you're on the right path, and then remove this note. Thanks for your submission and we hope to see your project published soon!

I'll do that, although it might take a bit, I'm a bit busy.
