How can I inspect the characters of a file name in Windows 10 ?
I have some files which contains some 'space' characters, and other who contain some 'non-breaking-space' characters. And maybe some with a mix of the two, or others who contains other "space-like" characters.
Another example would be the latin 'c' character, VS the cyrillic 'с' character.
I need to know how to inspect those characters, when I have the need.
To reproduce a simplified sample of the problem I am facing, you can use this in a PowerShell :
mkdir 'test space' mkdir 'test space' dir test*space
(the second one is with a non-breaking space, you can write one with Alt + 0160 on numpad)
Here is the output on PowerShell :
To be clear, I don't just want to differentiate between 2 nearly identical names.
I would like to have a way of knowing if one of the space in any filename / folder name is a special space (and which one it is), and same for other characters like 'c' : is it a latin 'c' or a cyrillic 'c' or some other graphically identical thing ? And which one ?
I have found different info on how to search for filenames with special characters : Trying to search filenames with special characters in windows explorer (Windows 10)
or how to create one :
But, if I've read correctly, it doesn't seem that the answers give a way to see the special characters.
