Verbose may refer to any of the following:

1. In computing, verbose refers to a mode or setting that displays or gets extended information. Below is an example of the MS-DOS dir command and a listing of a file in non-verbose mode and then in verbose.

dir tweakui.exe

TWEAKUI EXE 113,040 01-01-97 10:31p Tweakui.exe

dir tweakui.exe /v

TWEAKUI EXE 113,040 114,688 01-01-97 10:31p 01-01-97 A

2. Verbose is an FTP command that enables and disables verbose mode. See how to use FTP for information about verbose and other FTP commands.
