    I downloaded a file sent by my teacher thru fb. But when I go to the download button, then click the open file, there's a tab that says "Windows cannot find *name of the file*. Make sure you type the name correctly, then try again." I don't know what to do, and I can't do my narrative report without the form.

    Gathering Names Of Multiple Files

    Is it possible to get the names of multiple files and paste them in to Notepad or Word or something?

    Not sure how clear that is - I've got a folder with lots and lots of films from holidays etc. I've spent ages renaming them all to something meaningful (Other than Mov0001, Mov0002 etc etc)
    Unfortunatly, at the time, I didn't think to copy and paste the names in to a file as I did each one. But now people want to know what things I've got - so I want a list of all the names without having to type each one out seperately.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    Windows cannot find 'C:\users (insert file directory)' make sure you've typed the name correctly.

    Since the latest Windows 10 update I've been unable to open anything in 'my pictures' folder with a double click. I get the following error message every time I attempt to open a picture file or video file: Windows cannot find 'C:\users (insert file
    directory
    )' make sure you've typed the name correctly.

    • I've looked at my folder's options and 'quick access' is not set.
    • I can open the files by right clicking and selecting 'open with'.
    • I've found no issues after running 'sfc /scannow'.

    Please help!

    Thanks.

    directory listing file does not show Greek names correctly

    Thank you very much for your reply. I did it but it did not solve the problem. The answer was ???????? ?????? in GR.doc in the dirlst2.txt.
    My desktop runs WIN10 ver 1909 (build 18363535

    - - - Updated - - -

    I have to add a few info concerning the installation of windows.
    - Win10 were installed with English as installation language. Greek was added as second language later.
    - when the prime language is English then even in command prompt the dir listing of a file with greek name is not displayed correctly but with garbage characters in name
    - when primary language is defined Greek then the file name is correct in command prompt listing but not in the file produced by dir *.* >c:\tmp\dirlst.txt command
