I have a dozen directories and each has 50 or more files in them.
I would like to see all the directories combined into one list alphabetically.
Is their a simple way of extracting file names from Explorer (actually I use Free Commander)and list them out?

If you are talking about system files...I would not consider moving them or consolidating them. Windows expects to find them where they were originally installed and changing the locations will probably be tantamount to deleting them, with subsequent Windows hiccups.

Ditto for file created by programs you have installed.

If you are talking about data files...these can normally be moved anywhere, at any time. But programs which have previously accessed the files at a given location may have to be redirected to the new paths.

Have you read up in the documentaton of Free Commander? It shows "Directory listing can be made" as one of its File Management features.

Alternatively you can achieve all sorts of listings to file or printer from a command prompt:
