Fair enough, you can do that on the Mac too, sorry to have duplicated.

Somewhat (but maybe not entirely) off-topic, way back in the DOS/Win3.1 days i asked a Microsoft engineer on CompuServe if the DOS command copy <filename> prn (ie send a file directly to the default printer device without invoking a printer driver) could be replicated in the Windows GUI.

After some delay (and, I suspect, consultation) he came back and said, somewhat apologetically, that it couldn't.

Long live the command line smile

I'll put it down to late night ramblings, but if anyone has problems with a poster don't take things into their own hands, but report the posts.

I'm not sure that you would, or should, take much notice of a report sbout a poster claiming that his solution to a problem was obviously better than everyone else's. That doesn't mean that other posters might not, rightly, want to comment on that claim.

Time for an update ...

Thanks for the various suggestions and ideas ... for various reasons, complex, fiddly, unable to match character sets, compatibility with XP and Win10, idiot proof &c most would not be suitable.

I had hoped for a simple set of keystrokes from Explorer, but no!

The best solution that I have found is: http://www.infonautics-software.ch/directorylistprin... which came to me from two directions including RobertoS. It works in a similar way to Explorer (probably running that underneath), allows selection of specific file info ** and exports direct to Excel - which is where I need it thus removing the need to create and open a CMD window generated .txt file.




** It allows me to select the columns I require, in whichever order I need - removing need for a later edit too. These include: Filenames, Path (not needed), Create/Edit/Access Date and Time, Size in GB, MB or kB
