Thanks. However, that answers the how (kind of), but not the why.

comment Windows command-line: How to copy subdirectories, not files, under a given root dir?
It'd be great if you could explain the difference between /F and /D flags (for the sake of completion; I know for /? covers that). More importantly, what does the weird-looking substitution (?) pattern at the end do?

I have the broad lines of the question in the title, and the details and disambiguation in the question's body. If you can find a more descriptive (and still succint) title, by all means, edit the title.

comment How to set the default program for opening files without an extension in Windows?
Here's how I set the icon for .txt files for files with no extension (thanks @grawity for the pointer and idea): assoc "No extension"\DefaultIcon=%SystemRoot%\system32\imageres.dll,-102

OK, one more: in the above example, no_ext is what Windows Explorer will display in the 'Type' column for such files. I think a more readable description would be better, so I used "No extension" , including the double quotes, instead of no_ext in the above commands.

FWIW, in Win7 you need to run cmd as Administrator
