Have you ever wanted to quickly get a simple text list of files or folders within a Windows directory? Or maybe you want a text list of all files within all sub-folders of a main directory?  Well, BeyondCompare can do that for you.

Simply load a folder into BeyondCompare as if you were performing a folder comparison, the use then ‘File/Folder Compare Report’ option to copy the filenames (and any other properties you have displayed for the folder) to a plain text file or copy to clipboard.  Done.

I seldom use this, so I forget it is a useful tool for simply getting file or folder names to a text file.
