    File names vanish and reappear in all folders


    When I open a folder, the each file's name disappears and comes back only after it does it for every file int he folder. This has been happening for a few years on every PC that I have. I built a new one, hoping that it would be resolved. Please advise

    :)

    List file names than a folder.

    Is there a bat file to generate the list of file names that I have inside a folder?
    If possible you can help me to do it or give me suggestions. Thanks in advance.

    Please.

  3. Reappearing files I deleted

    Hi Aleander,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community.

    We understand how you feel about the situation. We're sorry for the trouble.

    I suggest you to follow the below steps to delete the folder and check if it's reappear.


      • Open the Command prompt with admin (Windows +x and select Command prompt).

      • In the command prompt, type the command below and press enter.

        NOTE: Substitute
        Full Path of Folder within quotes below with your folder's full path within quotes instead.

        RD /S /Q "Full Path of Folder".

      • The folder should now be deleted.

      • Close the command prompt.
    Please reply to us with the status of the issue and check if it helps.

    Thanks.

    List file names than a folder.

    Thanks for the suggestion I have obtained the list of the names of my folders, I have another question, you can.
    Or rather to customize several music files with the ending of a custom name.

    It is possible to switch to multiple files with a bat or exampleslash (custom name)blue (custom name) (custom name)pizarron (custom name)table (custom name)
