# Windows – List files with path using Windows command line

command linecommand-line-argumentswindows

My folder structure in a drive is like this (in Windows):

Folder 1
Fd1
Fd2
Fd3
Fd4
Fd5
Folder 2
Fd1
Fd2
Fd3
Fd4
Fd5


This arrangement continues for 100s of folders. Inside Fd1 of each Folder x there are certain .bat files. I am looking for a way to extract a list of .bat files with entire path using Windows command line to a text file. With little experience of using command prompt I am clueless of how this can be achieved.

I want the output to be a list like this:

............
D:\Folder 1\Fd1\one.bat
D:\Folder 2\Fd2\two.bat
............


Can someone help me?

If I understand what you are looking for try

dir/s/b *.bat


If that works then redirect it into a text file....

dir/s/b *.bat > textfile.txt


You may also find it useful to have a list of command line switches for the DIR command.
