dir command to target folder

October 20, 2019

Some great code for a Windows batch file was posted here, which will allow you to very easily run the Windows dir command on any folder. 


Enter this code in a text file and then save the file with the extension '.bat'.



SET targetPath="%~1"

SET ToolPath=%~dp0


dir %targetPath% /b /s /a-d > "%ToolPath%list.txt"



Then select the folder whose contents you want a list of and drag it from one Windows Explorer window into a different one in which the bat file is saved. 


A new text file will be generated that lists the contents of the folder (and any subfolders).  The full path to each file is listed - there is no other content.
