Re: display time in 12 hr

I mean, this topic is 10 years old... Forget about the %date% and %time% variables if you want to parse datetime values reliably. They depend on local settings. Use WMIC. for /f %%i in ('WMIC OS Get LocalDateTime /value') do for /f %%j in ("%%i") do set "%%j" echo %LocalDateTime% set "y=%LocalDateTi...

Re: Enabling Special Characters in Windows 10

It didn't even occur to me that this was a German word :oops: ("Das" is a singular article while Tips is plural which is the reason why I didn't see the relation.)
Besides of that, the founder of DosTips has German roots. I don't think he would be jealous :lol:

Re: Enabling Special Characters in Windows 10

I'm afraid you need to enlighten me on your pun. It might be obvious to a native speaker, but unfortunately not to me :lol: FWIW I personally find DosTips confusing enough. Certainly doesn't help to separate DOS (operating system) from Windows Batch (scripting language). This forum is way more about...

Re: Enabling Special Characters in Windows 10

it would be handy to be able to swap on the fly as the script is running
This might help: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=10156

[How-To] Get or set the console font size and font name (PowerShell hybrid)

Carlos, penpen, me, and probably others have been working for a long time to do this. Latest attempts that I recall can be found in this thread: https://www.dostips.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=5617 I'd like to offer a pure script solution that should work for supported ttf fonts in console windows...

Re: Utilities dealing with hosts files, WiFi, and system information

Eduardo I'm perfectly fine with you saying it's just a game for you. Do whatever you want to do in this case :lol: I was just still referring to how you should act for a professional tool. In this case you would probably have users that rely on you doing the right things because they don't even unde...

Re: Utilities dealing with hosts files, WiFi, and system information

I make these utilities as entertainment, it is my "game". This is an important information because it tells a lot about the aim of your utilities. Until now my asumption was that your goal is to develop tools which are helpful to gather information for a user. In this case you should write it from ...

Re: Shorten file names with REN

Tokenize the file names in a FOR /F loop.

Code: Select all

pushd "C:\your\folder"
for /f "tokens=1* delims=-" %%i in ('dir /a-d /b "Listing-*.txt"') do ren "%%i-%%j" "L%%j"
popd

Re: Fastest Recursive Searching

I refrain from asking you how you got it bloated that much :lol: FWIW I'm a little amazed that defining the source with a trailing space still works :o I mean, it's a known issue that "%programfiles%\" failes because robocopy uses the default C tokenizing for the command line. The backslash escapes ...

Re: Fastest Recursive Searching

Then it's probably still searching in the remaining folder structures. Maybe C:\Users (which is only 7.6 GB here).

Re: Fastest Recursive Searching

Your CPU must have been quite bored before :lol:
If you run the /MT:32 before /MT:8, is it still faster? (Beware of caching :wink:)

Re: CONVERTCP.exe - Convert text from one code page to another

Version 8.2 is a minor update. It adds the opportunity to overwrite the original file with the converted content. Pass a single minus sign along with option /o to specify it. The minus sign is only taken as wildcard for the same file name under the following assumptions: - option /i is specified - o...
