What’s it about??: After this tutorial,an option will be available whenever you right-click any folder which will display all the files and sub-folders inside that folder and save it to a text file.
- Create a .bat file
Open Notepad and copy-paste the following data in it.Quote:
dir /a /b /-p /o:gen >C:filelist.txt
start notepad C:filelist.txt
You can edit the path to your preference.Now name this file anything you wish and save it anywhere you wish.
- Make file visible in right click context menu.
Open explorer window,Go to Tools>Folder Options..>File types and from the registered file types list,select FOLDER.Click on Advanced>New….In the Action box,type in the name you want in context menu.For e.g. Generate File List..Then click on Browse..,navigate to the .bat file created in step 1 and save the changes.
You are done with the tutorial!!.Now right click any folder and select Generate File Listing.A text file will be created in your C: drive [or any path you specified in the .bat file.] called filelist.txt which contains list of all files and sub-folders in the parent folder!
