In the new version of Docker, commands are updated, and some management commands are added:
docker container ls
It is used to list all the running containers.
docker container ls -a
And then, if you want to clean them all,
docker rm $(docker ps -aq)
It is used to list all the containers created irrespective of its state.
And to stop all the Docker containers (force)
docker rm -f $(docker ps -a -q)
Here the container is the management command.

To list all running and stopped containers
docker ps -a
To list all running containers (just stating the obvious and also example use of -f filtering option)
docker ps -a -f status=running
To list all running and stopped containers, showing only their container id
docker ps -aq
To remove all containers that are NOT running
docker rm `docker ps -aq -f status=exited`
