I have been looking for a way to run dos batch files from the cygwin command line without having the enter the extension.

Would that be possible?

Currently, I have to enter the extension otherwise cygwin does not find the batch file.

Why do you want that? Anyway if your batch file is file.bat, try: 'cmd /C file' –  golimar Jan 11 '13 at 10:18
As a work around you can add alias command='command.bat' in your shell .profile –  kode Feb 8 at 22:25
