Exactly the same way you can save notepad files as , .xml, .csv, .php files or whatever you want to create. Keep in mind this will not work for all filetypes. If you can open the original files (e.g. .bat) with a notepad there’s a good chance it will also work when you save a file simply adding the extension .bat. However, you can’ create .exe files or .dll files that way.
