Hi

Basically i have about 70 names folders which contain various games/films etc. How can i paste the names of all of them to make a list ?

I cannot just copy them as it would duplicate them and i just want their title and not the content if you understand.

Anyone help ?

If you are familiar with command promptn and you want just a list of name without size, date, etc information.

Open command prompt

CD in to the folder you want to list and type the following which will create a file called filelist.txt contain a list of the folders and files in that directory.

dir /b > filelist.txt

Another program for you is file grabber, it's free and fool proof. You just grab the folders you want drop em' into the program then copy and paste from that screen to a txt or doc, that simple.
