when using "type" command to log serial port devices having COM number greater than 9 not accepting

User(s) can reproduce this bug
when using "type" command to log serial port devices having COM number greater than 9 not accepting.
From one of the windows forum found that for COM ports greater than 9, we need to specifify "\\.\COM10" like this. But still it is saying,
The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect." Error.
So, how do we use the type command to open COM ports greater than or equal to 10?
How often does this happen?
Have you seen this problem before in this product?
Yes, this happens in all previous versions
1. Connect any USB-Serial device.
2. Set COM port number greater than or equal to 10 using the device manager.
3. Now, redirect the COM output to some file using type command like
"type COM22 > serial.log"
"type" should accept COM greater than 9 or it should accept the usual solution given in windows forum "\\.\COM<x>".
