exporting just folder name to text file

Post by harryray2 » Sun Nov 06, 2016 7:36 am

Is there a way of exporting (as a text file) just the folder names without showing the path in the text file?

To export just the name part of all folders:
  • In Everything, type in the search:
    folder:
  • Turn off all columns (Right click the column header and uncheck all columns) except the name column.
  • From the File menu, click Export.
  • Change Save as type to CSV.
  • Select a file name and click Save.

Thanks...only problem is all the quotation marks!! Probably have to run it throgh a text editor to get rid of all the quotations.

No way of exporting as plain text I suppose?
