How to Print Out or Export Directory Lists to MS Word & Excel


Have you ever been tasked to present or print out your directory list in MS Word? Rather than browsing each folder to type all of the files, there is now a free utility that lets you do that automatically – the Directory List & Print, which we will explain in this article.

1.      Download the utility from this website (click on the Download English EN link): http://www.infonautics.ch/directorylistprint/

Figure 1: The Directory List & Print download page.

2.      This is how Directory List & Print looks like after you install it.

3.      Now let’s give it a test. On the first tab, we select a specific folder (All Soundfonts).

Figure 3: All of our Soundfont files are displayed below.

2. On the next section, as you can see, I have also checked the file size and date options. There are many other options here for you to check.

Figure 4: There are many things you can include (or exclude) to the list.

4.      On the next tab, select where you want to export your directory list. Let’s try putting it in Microsoft Word.

5.      And now we have your pretty directory list in MS Word with just a few clicks (and without typing effort).

Figure 6: Our Soundfont directory is now a list on MS Word.

Although there are some unavailable features of Directory & List Print (because it’s only a free version), it is still a good way of making a list of your directories in the most convenient way.
