Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, Gnome version 3.18.2 My desktop filled with multiple html pages (GHex editor output).


How to remove these HTML files from desktop in batch?

  • 1
    rm $HOME/Desktop/*.html – ajgringo619 Sep 18 '19 at 20:09

    ... or perhaps restrict the scope slightly: rm $HOME/Desktop/binary*.html if you don't want to delete ALL html files. – NickD Sep 18 '19 at 20:12
  • I want remove only above html files based on mask. There is other html files too, that should not be removed. – minto Sep 18 '19 at 20:13
  • How do you distinguish the ones you want to keep from the ones you want to remove? – Jeff Schaller Sep 18 '19 at 20:18

    What is a mask? Based on context it seems like you mean to say prefix? – jesse_b Sep 18 '19 at 20:34
