I have a batch file to make a list in notepad of a directory but it was made for Windows XP. Now I am trying to remodel it for Windows Vista. Here is the batch file:@echo Dumping directory listing to c:dirListing.txt@echoMarch 30, 2009 at 10:07 pm #31644
For some strange reason, they took out that functionality…after a quick look online, it is possible to do with a vbs scriptyou can make the script and add it to the context menu, then have it run the batch file, running it like dirbatch.bat C:so that the %1March 30, 2009 at 10:18 pm #31645
I liedi put this in a batch file, and added it to the send to menudir /a /s>lol.txtand it creates a file called lol.txt and adds the directory listing to it.... the lol.txt is in the same folder as the batch..ps vista send to menu is at:(enter this into run)%APPDATA%MicrosoftWindowsSendToMarch 30, 2009 at 10:38 pm #31646
so you took the 1% out ?Yep it works but this is the funny thing....If I wanted the dir list for C:UsersMitzDocumentsmy webs you do not right click on the actual my webs folder because it gives you all of the documnets dir list...You have to enter my webs and right click on a folder there, then it will give you the dir list for my webs???? Is this happening to you?Another way to get to the sendto folder in Vista:Hit the winkey and R to open run.Type in shell:sendtoMarch 30, 2009 at 10:44 pm #31647
