I have a small batch file I call "Filenames" that I can drop into a windows folder, double click, and it will create a notepad file in the same directory with the pathnames of every ".pdf" file. The code for this is pasted below
set pth = %~dp0
dir /s /b %pth%*.pdf >%pth%names.txt
Currently, I keep this file on my desktop and drag and drop it wherever I need it multiple times a day.
The other day I found a program called "CustomExplorerToolbar" that allows me to change the default buttons within the Windows 7 explorer toolbar (I wanted to remove "burn" and add "details pane, Paste, and Undo". That got me thinking, it would be great if I could have a button called "Filenames" in that same toolbar, and whenever I click it, it would perform its function of whatever folder I am currently in, outputting the .txt file right there. Can this be done?
Thanks in advance for the help!
