I had been searching for a program to do this for me and I almost gave up, when I came across this helpful short guide.
Tried and confirmed it works on xp pro.

How many times have you been browsing through directories in Windows Explorer and wished you could generate a text file or printout listing the files and folders? It seems like such a simple request that it's amazing the option isn't available. You don't believe me? Right click on a folder and see for yourself if there is an option to list or print the structure. There isn't, but there is a workaround that doesn't require any third party software. Here's how to create a context menu item that when clicked will generate an editable text file listing of the selected directory.


If you just want a list of folders, you just need the program Folder Indexer.

If there is anybody who has stumbled on the right utility, please post.

Have fun. :thumbsup:
