GNU ls for Microsoft Windows is, of course, a free and open source application, that allows you to use the 'ls' command on a Windows device.
Installation is very simple, but it isn’t clearly explained on the application. What you have to do is decompress the files in the System32 directory within the Windows folder on your hard drive.
From there, you can use the 'ls' commandoon Windows with all of its options, just like you would on GNU/Linux. All of this makes GNU ls for Microsoft Windows a great tool in getting the most out of your Windows window.
