Exactly the same way you can save notepad files as .html, .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.
