How to remove a file ending with a dot in windows 10?

I can't delete files that has filenames ending with a dot(.) character in Windows 10. I simply press the delete key and also right click delete. Both gives me the error message file doesn't exist.

I got these files through FTP from a Linux machine. Are there any special tools for deleting these files?

Windows filesystem doesn't support files and directory names ending with dot(.). But You could delete them from Windows command prompt.

Type cmd in the search bar and press Enter. The run the  del command to delete files and rd command to delete directories.
