Saving terminal commands and running them.

Is there a way to add some commands to say a text file and save it, then double click it and it opens terminal and runs those commands?

Yes, there is. Look into bash scripting.

There is bash and script forum here on the Linux Mint forums: viewforum.php?f=213

This might be a good thread to get you started: viewtopic.php?f=213&t=77062

Good luck!

You're welcome. Scripts can definitely make your life a lot easier.

In case you haven't read about it already, look into using cron to automatically run your scripts or other tasks.

Not exactly what you mention, but...
How about a nice GUI..? :D
I personally could not live without this one.

Comes with pre-installed commands (most not all that useful, but you add your own, after time you will have MANY).
