Here is a free software to create the list of files and folders and save the list as image, text, and/or HTML file for later use. The software is named as “Filelist Creator“. Although you can see the list of files available under a directory in File Explorer, but it won’t help you to save that list. You can only capture the visible area using some screenshot capture software and save it to PC. So, what’s the other choice you have when you want to save the list of all files and folders available under a particular directory? In that case, Filelist Creator is probably the best choice.
This software also shows the preview of output. Apart from this, it also lets you select the information that you want to include for the output list. For example, you can include/exclude file name, path, created date, file format, etc.. for the list and export it to any of the supported format.
Above you can see the interface of this software with output preview.
