How to Print a Windows Directory to a File
I'm doing something new. I'm blogging a “tip of the week” every week until you tell me to stop 🙂
Seriously, here's the first one. And it may seem a little “out of the ordinary” (aka, “strange”).
But it's a method I use OFTEN. Maybe 3-4 times a week. Maybe more.
Watch the video to see it in action.
This video shows you the easy way to print a Windows directory listing to a file.
(Subscribe to my channel when you get there. I just created it and will be filling it with a weekly tip, at the very least.)
I “print” to a text file whose contents I then paste into Microsoft Excel (or any other spreadsheet application), manipulate a little, sort, and then save.
But it's certainly not intuitive!
I use this when I want to use a file list in, say, bullet points in a sales letter.
Some other reasons you may want to print a Window folder to a text file:
- Sometimes, technical support needs to know what's in a particular file. I hate typing out the contents of a folder. This works like a charm.
- I have a specific use that you may not have…I use a program that will auto-populate filenames, file descriptions, etc. in a file import process. This is the beginning of that process. Saves me at least an hour every time I use it.
One more thing: One Minute Traffic is still available, cheap. Get it here: https://internet-marketing-muscle.com/omft This is already working for me and I see a TON of potential. First week fully using OMFT: Over 1,300 views of my answers. Cheers,
