Let’s say you need to include a list of files in a given directory into your email.
Surprisingly, there is no obvious way to do this in Windows without a third party software.
Here is a sure way to do that using just Command Prompt and Microsoft Word.
To get a list of files in a directory use this command:
DIR C:Windows /a > C:FileList.txt
Open C:FileList.txt in Word and Alt+Select the area of the document that contains only file names.
Copy using keyboard (Ctrl+C) and paste into email, or Excel, or any other document where you need to see the list.
