I added docker stop command since I frequently forget to run docker stop $(ps -a -q). Thanks for the gist!

@echo off
FOR /f "tokens=*" %%i IN ('docker ps -aq') DO docker stop %%i && docker rm %%i
FOR /f "tokens=*" %%i IN ('docker images --format "{{.ID}}"') DO docker rmi %%i

@Samshal this command isn't working, giving me this error
"docker rmi" requires at least 1 argument.
See 'docker rmi --help'.

Usage: docker rmi [OPTIONS] IMAGE [IMAGE...] [flags]

Remove one or more images

This doesn't work on Windows 10:
%%i was unexpected at this time.

@stiv-yakovenko when running those commands outside of a batch-file, you should replace %%i with %i.

docker system purge -af
Works the same on Windows and Linux, removes all unused images, containers, and networks.

I Would like contribute with a version in PowerShell:

foreach ($line in $(docker ps -a) ) {

    $line -match "^\w{12}"
    $container = docker inspect $Matches.Values | ConvertFrom-Json

    if ( $container.id ) {
        docker rm $Matches.Values
    }
}
