How to convert files into a list on your PC

Recently I wanted to be able to list all my ebooks into an editable list in Excel. The only way I could see to do it was to type the titles out by hand – not really practical when you have thousands of the damn things!

Anyway – a quick internet search and I found the solution… so wanted to share it with you.

Open up Windows Explorer, and drag the folder containing all your files into your web browser – simple as!

Then you can copy and paste that information into Excel, Word, Notepad… or whatever… ready to edit.

Obviously this applies to all file types and not just ebooks. So next time you want to have a proper list of all your videos, or music files, or even photographs – this method will do the trick.

Good luck!
