    Just remove the /s in dir /b /s /a:-d "%target%" in my answer to exclude subdirectories. – Bob Jun 16 '12 at 3:09

  • This should work: dir /a-d /b | sed -e "s/^.*([.][^.]*)/\1/g" | sort | uniq – Kevin Fegan Nov 15 '12 at 1:45

I'm not sure what you're asking. I think you want to know a DOS command to list all files with a filename extension ending in both .txt and .exe? For that I'd just type in "DIR C:\DIR\*.EXE; C:\DIR\*.TXT" (Notice the space after "DIR" and a space after the semicolon. Also don't include the quotes.)

  • No. The body of the question is confusing, but the title is more clear. They wanted to query a directory and get a list of unique file extensions based on the files present. – iglvzx Jun 16 '12 at 6:34
