I need to create 500 empty files with names that are contained in filenames.txt, which contains 500 entries, with one line per entry. How do I do that in Windows?

Edit: Clarified the title


Try this:

@Echo off & chcp 65001 & For /F "Tokens=* delims= " %%a in ('type filenames.txt') do type nul >%%a

Note: If there are no extensions specified inside filenames.txt, then add it at last of the code.
