You can use the recurse switch to get all subfolder and then pipe to where to check if it is a file or folder.

Get-ChildItem c:\temp -Recurse | Where {$_.PSISContainer -ne $True} | out-file c:\temp\files.txt

Or CSV File

Get-ChildItem c:\temp -Recurse | Where {$_.PSISContainer -ne $True} | export-csv c:\temp\files.csv

Since PSIsContainer is a boolean value, it is more straightforward to omit comparision (which is redundant):
Get-ChildItem c:\temp -Recurse | Where {!$_.PSIsContainer} | out-file c:\temp\files.txt

Open in new window

You can use aliases, which are a matter of taste:
gci c:\temp -recurse | ? {!$PSIsContainer] | out-file c:\temp\files.txt

Open in new window
