    Printing file names in a folder from file explorer

    I use the Snipping tool and take a screen shot.

    Go to search and type snipping tool and open it.

    It is very straight forward. All you have to do is click new and then use your mouse to drag what section you want.

    Hope that helps!

    If you want the subdirectories too then do this:

    dir /ad /s /b > listmyfolder.txt

    /ad means show only directories
    /s means recurse through subdirectories
    /b means show basic details.
