Windows tree Command Example

A quite often forgotten Windows command, tree, is useful when documenting and looking at a folder layout.

What is Tree?

Graphically displays the folder structure of a drive or path.


TREE [drive:][path] [/F] [/A]

   /F   Display the names of the files in each folder.
   /A   Use ASCII instead of extended characters.


Here are two examples, one with displaying ASCII characters and one with extended character output.
