1. Open up your command prompt by typing cmd in the run dialog box and hitting Enter.
2. Navigate to the directory which has the files and type the following command -
DIR /B /O:N > filename.txt
This will save all the filenames in the current directory to a text file. The text file will be saved in the same directory.
3. To save file names from any sub-directories in the current folder, just add /S like -
DIR /B /O:N /S > filename.txt
for /r %f in (*) do @copy "%f" .
Note that the trailing period in the command is significant… it designates the current folder as the destination for the copy operation.
