The easiest way to print a list of folders and files in Windows 10

Here is a quick tutorial with instructions on how to quickly create a text file listing all files and folders in a certain Windows directory. It’s really easy and it’s using Explorer together with CMD. It works both in Windows 10 and Windows 7.

Windows 10 Instructions:

1. In Windows Explorer go to the location of the folder which you want to print a contents list.
2. Press Alt -> D on your keyboard (the address bar of Windows Explorer will become in focus).
3. Type cmd and press Enter. (the command prompt will open in the folder path that you have chosen above).
4. Type (or copy and paste) the following to the command prompt:

dir > list_of_files_and_folders.txt

5. Press Enter on your keyboard.

In your directory, you’ll now have a file called list_of_files_and_folders.txt that lists your folders and files.

Even better, any sub-folder contents and files in sub-folders will not be in the list.
