how can I copy all .png files in my current directory to a folder in my current directory called "src"?

I tried this code:

copy .*.png /src 

and it didn't work for me.

remove the forward slash so

copy *.png src

You had an extra period in the source, try this :

copy *.png /src
  • ..and that states src is off the root and not a local subfolder - remove the slash.

If the src subdirectory exists...try

copy *.png .\src\*.png
  • Way overcomplicated

  • ... but nonetheless correct where other answers placed the target directory in the root directory, and also not prone, as other answers are, to silently doing something quite different to what the questioner desired whenever there's no directory named "src".
