I have folders that contain the lists of documents, or video clips, or music clips, etc.  When I go to the folder, I click on the item, it opens and I read the document, view the video, or listen to the music.  I heard that there is a way to copy the list in the folder and convert it to an excel file/sheet that can be edited and sorted, etc.  This excel sheet would not replace the original list in the folder but would be a separate record to make keeping track of what is in the folder simpler.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hopefully this is what you are looking to do.

For many many folders of items I use a file catalog program called Where Is It. It is a paid program.
