Default combine text files (windows)

I recently had to combine a bunch of CSV files. And didn't want to load them into a program to do this. And I didn't want to type the name of every file to append them all using the command prompt.

But I found an easy command I can use from the command prompt. This assumes you are in the correct folder. In my case, I was combining many csv files into a file called all.txt. Easier than I imagined.

copy *.csv all.txt
