I want to use the command prompt on my windows xp os to do a global search on the c drive of any files with certain extensions. For example, C:\> dir /s *.exe....however, this last command is not correct. Is this even possible?

Nevermind. The correct way is: dir *ending.exe /s or dir beginning* /s or dir *middle* /s
