I Have a Windows Question...

Recommended Posts

I use Windows MELet's say that I have a folder, called ..../AVSIM_Downloads.And in that folder there are say, like 9,248 separate files.And let's say that I want to make an EXCEL based list of those files so that I can categorize and do some file maintenance...Without retyping the file name of each one, how can make windows produce a list of these that I can paste into EXCEL.Thanks in advanceBobL

I'm running Linux right at the moment but I recall this would work just fine:Select Start->Run. Type in command.Find the proper directory (cd X:whatever) and type:dir /b > list.txtI know there are much more elegant ways to do this, for instance there is some application that will let you do this by putting an extra command in explorer (actually, in the SendTo folder).However, this should work as well.Regards,Dave

Hello,In the "run window", type command. Then type:d:cd fs2002 (if this is the directory you mean)List the files:dir /b > list.txtOr even shorter, though:dir d:fs2002 /b > d:fs2002list.txtThe file will then be found in the fs2002 folder and named list.txt, obviously.Dave
