I can find ftype by

Code: Select all

.gif=Honeyview.gif

You may use a "for/f"-loop (untested):

Code: Select all

@echo off
setlocal enableExtensions disableDelayedExpansion
for /f "tokens=* delims==" %%a in ('assoc .png') do set "%%~a"

echo(.png=%.png%
goto :eof

thank you penpen, it works.
I modified a little bit

Code: Select all

@echo off
FOR /F "delims== tokens=2" %%G IN ('assoc .gif') DO set temp1=%%G
echo %temp1%
pause
