Trying to remove specific extension only-folders and sub

Postby rufunky » Thu Nov 17, 2016 4:36 pm

:?: :?: Hi, I am trying to remove specific extension only from a bunch of files in folders and Subfolders. In filter 12 I have "Files" and "Subfolders" checked / extension 11 I have "Remove" checked in the blank space I wrote .dll which is the extension I would like to remove from the files that have that extension. The program continues to just remove all extensions. Can someone please help me. I am not sure what I am doing wrong. :?: :?:

One thing I would like to note is these files all have TWO extensions at the end of the file names causing some of the other methods in this program to rename/delete the first extension instead of the last one.

11.Extension, that blank box is only applicable when you use the 'Extra' setting there.

When choosing 'Remove', it will remove all selected file's extensions.

So in 12.Filters, enter a mask there of *.dll, then in 11.Extension, a Remove will still remove all extensions, but will only affect files that you've filtered in 12.Filters, so only *.dll files.

Perfect! Thank you so much
