    Hello @sunny123,

    This is NOT a direct answer to your question, but I normally use this [ Non-CMD ] method as it has an excellent search facility and you can Export the results to a .txt File . . .

     Everything - FREE

    Everything [ FREE ] is an extremely quick search engine that locates files and folders by filename instantly. Unlike Windows search, it initially displays every file and folder for which the criteria of the search matches.

    About Everything:

    • Small installation file.
    • Clean and simple user interface.
    • Quick file indexing.
    • Quick searching.
    • Minimal resource usage.
    • Share files with others easily.
    • Real-time updating.

    > Website & Download => Everything - VoidTools



    I hope this helps.

    EDIT:

    Also, see my post here => W/o program, how to Windows 10 Search Fast (minutes not hours)

    If all you want is the list of files [with their paths] then
    - Do the search in File explorer
    - In the results press Ctrl-A to select all
    - Hold down the Shift key as you right-click then select Copy as path
    - Paste into Excel / a text editor, as suits your needs
