MS-DOS applications

Below is a listing of the applications included with MS-DOS and what file extension it used. As MS-DOS continued to grow, applications were removed and added. In this list you can see what programs were included with your versions of MS-DOS. This list only applies for MS-DOS 2.x to 6.22. As Windows grew into what it is today, many of the applications were removed or changed. If you're running Windows 95 or higher and want to know if an application is available, see the command page for that application or command.
