Re: Use Dir Command for List of Filenames Only

Not sure, but don't I need a For.exe/For.com file somewhere on my Windows 7 system? I keep getting a 'file not found' error message.

Use Dir Command for List of Filenames Only

I need to make a list of all files, all types, in a folder and its subfolders. I don't want the folder and subfolder names to appear in the list, just the file names. Does any one know if this can be done and if so, what command options I should use? :?:

Regards...John
