I've digitised many VHS tape videos to my external HDD and named them. How to print off the list of those video file names?

 

Clicking on 'This PC' in the notif. area (system tray)  I get a nice list of those files but can I print those somehow?  Thanks for any advice.

 

Win 10 & Chrome

Open the folder with the file names in Computer. Right click the address in the address bar of file explorer. Select copy address as text.

 

This cannot be done in IE. This will only work in Chrome or Firefox.

 

Open your browser and paste the address in the browser address bar. 

 

You will see your file names in a browser page. You can save the page as an HTML file in firefox or chrome. Chrome can also print the page as a PDF file.

Thanks for responding.

 

"Open the folder with the file names in Computer"  Where is this? Opening file explorer I get 'Quick Access' which shows only 20 of the VLC files and there are the words 'Quick Access 'in the  address bar.  I can't see how to show all the files in File Explorer of which I have 800 odd!

 

Can you help please?

Double Click Computer. Double Click your external drive. Browse to the folder with your video files. In the address bar of file explorer right click and select Copy address text. Open Chrome. Right click the address bar and select Paste. You should see your files in Chrome.

You can save the page as an HTML file in firefox or chrome. Chrome can also print the page as a PDF file.

 

Once you have saved this list as a file - either .HTML or .PDF -  somewhere where you can find it, all you have to do is add the file as an attachment to an email.
