Here you can perform the following tasks with the batch of your selected articles:

Joomla also provides you similar batch processing capability for your categories, menu items, and users.

As you can see, batch processing is a fairly simple task. You just select the items to batch process. Then you select what particular action you would like to perform on them. And finally, you click the Process green button. It's that simple.
