What is a bat file and how do I open a bat file?

The BAT file format is implemented for DOS batch files that contain code for initializing and executing certain built-in Windows applications and resources. Sequential lines of code contained in a BAT file is normally implemented for running installed applications, built-in programs and maintenance utilities in Windows systems. These BAT files can be created by using Microsoft Notepad among other text editors, and a BAT file can be created, also with these text editing applications, in order to automate certain repetitive tasks that may be performed by some installed Windows applications.
