    Don't know what/where these files belong


    Just received an email from my brother asking what these files are in a folder on the D: drive named Assets, where do they belong to and can they be deleted?

    OS Windows 10 Home

    File explorer >Local Disk > D: drive > Assets

    The jpg files can be opened but the other files cannot.

    Any thoughts?

    Somebody has copied daily pictures from Spotlight folder to this location. Maybe some app, or was it done manually.

    You can open files without extension, if you rename them from file. to file.jpg

    You can delete them

    Is there any way of finding out to which software these files belong to?

    Did you renamed it to file.jpg?

    open command prompt in this folder, and type

    Code:
    ren *. *.jpg

    Command Prompt is not an option only PowerShell is set as an option

    Which I believe the ren code may not work?

    That would not open the command prompt in the desired folder?
