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?
