dir command to get a list of only folder paths

If you have a directory in Windows with a lot of subfolders, and you need to get a list of just the folders and not any files which they may contain, you can use this dir command in command prompt:

dir /s /b /o:n /ad > list.txt

As always, you can put this little script in a text file, change the extension to .bat and double-click to activate it. It will output a text file with the list of folders.
