If you need to create a list of files in a particular folder/directory, here’s an easy way to do it within Windows.
In Windows Explorer, move to the folder holding the files. Holding down the Shift key, do a right mouse click and choose Open Command Line Here.
When you get to the command prompt, type in the command
Dir > Print.txt
This will create a text file which has a list of the files.
Unfortunately, it also has other information, but if you open it up within Excel, you can get a list of just the files. I have found that after I have done some basic editing in Excel, I copy and paste to a Text Editor to get my final product.
