Re: How to differentiate between similar filename extensions?

Another way to do this is with the where command. To search from your present directory:

Code: Select all

where ".:*.jpe"
You can replace the period with the exact file location if you want to search another directory:

Code: Select all

where "C:\Users:*.jpe"
Another option is forfiles:

Code: Select all

forfiles /M *.jpe

Re: Box Drawing and Prompt

Keep in mind, you can capture the ESC character as a variable and then use it with the appropriate terminal escape sequence to indicate the color:

Code: Select all

for /f %%e in ('echo prompt $E^|cmd') do set "\e=%%e"
echo %\e%[97m

Re: prepend each object

prepend each object

I'm relatively new to powershell, so forgive me for what is likely a simple question. Is there a way to prepend text to individual objects like this: $objects = systeminfo.exe /FO CSV 2>&1| ConvertFrom-Csv; $objects.'Total Physical Memory'; $objects.'Available Physical Memory'; $objects.'Virtual...
