    I know that I can easily change the filetype of all files within a Windows folder by opening an elevated command prompt within that folder and typing "ren * *.jpg" or whatever other filetype I want to change it to, but how can I modify this command so that it renames all files in the current folder, but ALSO, in all subfolders?

    Have you looked at the help for the "REN" command?
    And you could use Bulk Rename Utility.
