    How do I remove files with similar names from a folder?


    Hi,

    I have a folder with 1000+ files containing images. They have similar names like:

    imgred_4752
    imgred_4785
    imgred_4473
    imgyellow_571
    imgyellow_582
    imgyellow_565

    I would need one file per type, so, for example, it should be:

    imgred_4752
    imgyellow_582

    Can I do it with a software that automate the process?

    Thank you!

    :)

    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.

    Hello @White,

    I have just put this together for YOU => List_Folder_Files.bat.

    You need to put it in whatever directory you want to produce the list of files.

    I hope this helps!
