When I come to office in each morning, to get started I have to open eclipse, Mozilla, Outlook, etc.

Can I make script or an file which contains .exe path of above programs and once I run it, it will open all of the applications I need?

It is much simpler than a script: Just copy the shortcuts to the Startup Program folder.

It is located here on XP:

C:\Documents and Settings\ProfileName\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

And here on Vista/Windows 7:

C:\Users\ProfileName\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

The easiest way to get to the folder is to go to Start (or the new Windows Button)>All Programs>Startup and right click and open. Copy any shortcuts for the programs you want to open there.

4 years late, but just for the record...

AutoHotKey can not only open them, but position their windows around your screen(s) exactly how you want them as well.
