Wildcard file name matching with multiple dots on Windows

7 views (last 30 days)
fclose(fopen('myfile.txt', 'w'));
fclose(fopen('myfile.txt.1', 'w'));
dir('*.txt.*')
will match "myfile.txt" and "myfile.txt.1" on Windows to my surprise.
Is there a way to only get 'myfile.txt.1'?
There is a similar post on
but this didn't help me
