Find duplicate file names with different extension

Hey guys, a noob here.
I am trying to search for files that have a duplicate in the same directory with a different extension.
example
C:\users\user1\Downloads\file1.exe
C:\users\user1\Downloads\file1.exe.old

Ideally I'm only interested to see the file1.exe.old

Would appreciate anyone's help
