I have about 1,000 files on my PC and want to copy their names (not the file contents). How can I copy the names to, say, Excel? I know one or more of you guys will have the solution!
Thanks and Go Saints!!

in DOS you can do a directory of the folder and put the contents into a file.

click Start -> Run -> cmd

that'll get you to a DOS prompt. then get to the directory you want and type

dir > myfolder.txt

that'll create a text file called myfolder.txt with all of your file names in it.
