Windows TYPE command to combine files

September 25, 2018

You can use the Windows command TYPE to command multiple text files.   In this example we have a folder of multiple text files and we want to merge the content of each into a single text file. 


Enter the command TYPE followed by a wildcard search for text files and then designate a new text file to contain the content of the source files:


>TYPE *.txt >combine.txt


The names of the source files will be listed in command prompt and the new 'combine.txt' file will have their content.
