I finished making the batch files for adding shortcuts to the programs that Windows XP (Home or Professional) doesn’t install by default.
All programs listed in my first comment only shortcut some applications
, no one of them is complete, or simply call the application from their own program
. In different ways, generally very mixed, and many repeat some applications that are already installed by default, for example: Notepad or Character Map.
The batch file that I made “Windows XP Hidden Applications“
install all the shortcuts to the applications that Windows XP doesn’t call and that are "hidden" inside directories and folders. There are 62 applications
that doesn’t appear in any way unless one knows the name and extension or the keyboard shortcut to call it.
Excluded are those that are installed but not seen as System Administrative Tools that resides in Control Panel, and if you want to see it in Accessories, you must go to Control Panel > Taskbar and Start Menu > Start Menu > Customize > Advanced > System Administrative Tools and tick Display on the All Programs menu.
In order that all applications are seen one must install Windows XP with Service Pack 3 complete. After completing the standard installation go to Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs > Add/Remove Windows Components and tick all the options. If you do not label some of them, the associated shortcuts will not work. But this is a option that you decide and depends of your actual requirements.
I also made another batch installer “Windows XP Command Line”
, with 210 command lines.
I included only those that respond to the command line. There are others, but the command line must be applied directly in order to function.
This is a job that can be improved and if anything is missing or there are errors I will appreciate your suggestion and will correct it. There is a ReadMe.txt file with the instructions.
