I was looking for something like the DOS command "dir *.xxx /s" and that's it!
Very useful!
Thank you

Thanks for your suggestion. dir with '*' will do the same. My inten tion is to list all files even they are in subfolders for the ease of further use.

You may use LS with wildcard '*' and that's it.
