  1. yea I am trying to make a list of my music library which is setup so that 1 folder=1 album so I am trying to take these 500 folders or whatever and somehow copy just the name of it to something like word, or excel or something...so I can make a list of them to send to other people, print or whatever...I tried to copy and paste them to word, excel, wordpad, notepad, and I just tried to click and drag them to those programs but no luck...and yes I realize I could type them all out but that's a little too much like work... here's an example of how I have this all set up http://img172.imageshack.us/my.php?image=music2mm.jpg

    From a command prompt go to the directory where all these folders exist.
    Type: dir > list.txt
    the list.txt file should have all the directory names for you. It'll also have couple of extra lines you might want to remove for current directory and parent directory.
