    The other day I made a very simple batch file with this:

    Code:
    start chrome
    https://mail.google.com/mail/#inbox gbatemp.net
    The reason I want to do this is so it loads these tabs automatically when I startup my PC but I don't want these tabs to open EVERY time I open Google Chrome.

    The batch file worked for the first few days but just now it's seems to have broken

    If Chrome is your standard browser, you can just use
    Code:
    start https://mail.google.com/mail/#inbox
    start http://gbatemp.net
    Works for me.

    OK, that half works thanks. My problem now is that it open in 2 separate windows, how would I make it so they both in in 1 window but on separate tabs?

    try
    Code:
    start https://mail.google.com/mail/#inbox
    new-tab http://gbatemp.net
    It may be different or totally wrong.

    If you're always gonna want them open, pin those two tabs. Then they'll always be there when Chrome opens.

    Otherwise, replace "chrome" in your original script with the full path to chrome (%LOCALAPPDATA%\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe is the default on Windows 7 and Vista, not 100% sure for XP).

    Yay that works, thanks. (Not the pinning, the full path).
