Windows: command line: forfiles command

Self-tutoring about Windows cmd prompt: the tutor mentions the forfiles command.

I continue to use the command line when navigating Windows, likely because it seems quicker than the file explorer.

To find files in the current directory last modified on or after dd/mm/yyyy, one can try the forfiles command:

forfiles /d +dd/mm/yyyy /c “cmd /c echo @file @fdate”
