Hi... heres a good one for you and all those out there
who need to keep a list of files within certain directories..
This function can be done quite easily..
1. GO START BUTTON SELECT RUN
2. TYPE CMD THEN ENTER
HERE IT IS IMPORTANT TO UNDERSTAND THE FOLDER YOU ARE CURRENTLY IN this will probably be your user documents and settings folder..
If you require to list all the contents of files and folders within this directory then continue to 3.
else navigate to the follder you require to list files for .. use "CD.."<enter>" to go down a level and "CD <name of directory you want to change to>
these are simple dos navigation commands...
3. WE ARE GOING TO USE THE DIR COMMAND TO LIST THE CONTENTS OF A GIVEN DIRECTORY BUT WE WILL USE SOME SWITCHES AS FOLLOW ...take note of the spaces....
DIR/b /s > dirlist.txt
simple huh well there you go now you can have lotsa fun listing every directory under the sun.. please take note doing a listing on drive C can take a rather bit of time...
Also note the "dirlist.txt" file here can be given a name of your choice and once the listing has completed the TXT file can be found within the folder you executed the command from.
How do I print the list of folder/file names you can see on screen when in Windows Explorer?
I know about 'print screen' but doing Prt Scr/Paste/Print one page at a time is rather time-consuming! I'm using Windows XP (Professional) with SP2. Thanks!
