I have a directory that contains 569 GIFs, and a web page that lists 557 of those GIFs. I want to copy & paste both lists into an Excel sheet to compare them and find the missing entries on my web page. The problem I have is how to copy & paste the list of gifs from a windows explorer directory. I just want the text in the NAME column within the explorer window, but highlighting the list copies the files themselves. Is there a way of getting just the list of file names which I can copy & paste into another document (Excel, Notepad, wherever)?
