To write a batch file you can use any texteditor. A batch file is just a textfile with file extension ".bat", so Notepad would do if you remember to save it with the correct extension. Or rename the file afterwards.

But maybe that was not your question?

Your batch file would look like commands you would type in the COMMAND PROMPT, such as

CD C:\YourFolder
Rename YourFile.txt "Your File.txt"
RunProgram.exe
Exit

Notice the quotes around "Your File.txt".  This is necessary if you have spaces in file titles.
The EXIT at the end closes the command prompt session.

You can use notepad for the editor.  Save or rename to .bat when finished.
You can create a Windows Shortcut to this file if you like.

I don't think using batch file is a good idea to modify the group policy. I recommend you to use the vbscript to do so. If you want to repeat change some value, you can write a small vbscript for one item and then write a batch file to call this vbscript repeatedly.

Dear edzhu,

Thanks very much for your suggestion. I want to disable the usb and wireless devices in the laptop. Is is possible to write a script for that? If so please suggest me the code. Thanks.

Thanks,
Venkat

For the detail problem, I think the following two articles will be helpful to you. It provides you a solution to disable the usb device.

I am not sure about the wireless. But I think it is same.

Why not just making a batch file to directly change the PC's registry "fdenyaccess" to 0?
