Windows GUI to run batch files?

What program can I use in order to run batch files that I can list in a GUI type format on a Windows computer?

I would like something that will run, where I can have a list of specific .bat files, and if the user click on a specific item on the list, then the batch file will run.

You can make a menu of batch files in the Start Programs setup of any Windows machine. I do this all the time so that I have a menu of logon scripts.

C:\Users\username\Documents\A Smart Menu\Batch Logon Scripts

Put your scripts here and you will have a flyout menu for them. You can put the folder on the desktop and also have a flyout menu for them.

Thanks, good idea.  However I would like a program of sorts to be able to run.  Then I want to manually be able to add batch files as needed.

I just add batch files to the folder, delete if necessary and change as required. The flyout is automatic.

I do this for users and they do not have any difficulty.

I like QSEL a lot, not sure if it's what you are thinking off, but wanted to mention it.

POPSEL is it's related cousin, but I prefer QSEL myself.

And if you just want to drive a GUI menu from a BAT file / text file, take a look at WSELECT.
