    Deleting TIF via DOS (IE5)

    I intend to delete the TIF via DOS but a problem presents itself. How do I key in the tilde in DOS?
    How are C:WindowsTemporary and C:WindowsTemporary Internet Files distinguished in DOS?
    My OS is Win ME.

    Many thanks

    Rob

    Why not create a batch file using Notepad and run that? You should be able to enter "~" and any other character you want that way.

    Thanks Rick and Leif.

    I took a look at the Langa site but it warns that the Cleanall.bat is specific to Win 9x and that other OS's will require manual modification. My OS is Win ME and I am not yet sufficiently familiar with its structure to do this.

    Cheers
