View Full Version : Generate a file list

10-12-2006, 03:06 AM
I have 1400 text files in a folder and I want a list of them to send to someone. I'm sure as hell not going to type them all out manually. They're also all in a bunch of different sub-folders, so it would be inconvenient to take screenshots of them. Is there any way to get a list of files in a folder?

Open a DOS window, type

cd c:\whatever\directory\you\need
dir /b /s > filelist.txt

Behold the wonders of the command line.

It occurs to me that I'm a giant n00b who doesn't know how to open a DOS window in Window's XP. :P;;

It works in command prompt.
<tt>Start > All Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt</tt>, or <tt>Start > Run > cmd</tt>
