  1. "Mode" info returned by Windows 10 dir command


    Windows 10 seems to have a new set of info returned by the "dir" Powershell command. This appears under the "Mode" heading, e.g. -a---- or d----- , but nowhere have I found what these entries mean or how to interpret the individual characters. I get that they have to do with folder and/or file permissions, but where are they explicitly described?



    :)

    GPU-Z what command line parameter ?

    Suggestion: /? (-?) and /help (-help) command-line arguments to show a list of all possible arguments in a small window. *Smile "Mode" info returned by Windows 10 dir command :)
     
  3. dir Difficulties


    I am getting the hang of this command set.

    Maybe somebody know a work around that will list the three time stamps at one time.
    Theoretically dir /TC /TA /TW.
    dir will only show one of the three at one time.

    To me it seems that the only way to get all three on a line is to run loop with output to file, then boiling down the three outputs to one line. Clumsy but maybe the only way to get the job done?

    Thanks for any suggestions.

  4. "Mode" info returned by Windows 10 dir command

    list contents similar to Dir command by Windows built in "Kind"

    I've been searching for a way to print a listing of folder and subfolders and only want a certain kind, based on Windows built in "Kind" associations.

    I know how to do the dir command to print a listing of a folder and how to use the dir command to list only a certain type.

    What I am hoping for is someone out there might know of a way to make a printout or a file of the listings of a certain "kind" based on the associations that are setup in Windows.

    For example, if you use Explorer to search, you can by kind (Documents, movies, videos, music, etc), or type (*.exe, *.avi, *.mp3, *.txt, *.doc, etc)

    I've tried to search using various terms here, on Bing, Google, etc and it's just not taking me anywhere that might give me help. I've even looked for powershell scripts someone might have posted to do the job.

    Prefer to not install 3rd party software to do the trick but use Windows built in solutions but am open to suggestions as a last resort.
