I have to open 32 command windows and run a command in each window. Such as

psshutdown @nyp1.txt -s -f -t 0

The name of the text file changes in each windows nyp1.txt   nyp2.txt  thru 32    - I wanted to know if there is a command that I can run that would automate the process by opening  the command windows and run the psshutdown command for me, so I don't have to do it manually?

@echo off
setlocal
for /l %%i in (1, 1, 32) do (
	start "Shutdown nyp%%i.txt" cmd.exe /c psshutdown.exe @nyp%%i.txt -s -f -t 0
)

Open in new window
