How can I create a list with only movie titles from a collection?

Donald S April 26, 2013

I have a list of movies. I would like to copy “only” the title of the movie to make a text list of the movies. I want to send a list of the movies that I have on my PC to my sister, so that she may read over it and pick which ones she would like me to send her. Is there any way of doing this on Windows or Linux?

    I concur with ha14 for using directory list and print.One more tip is that you can get your output in excel hyperlinked which will be useful.

    Try this freeware disk video cataloger program and export the list to a text file: [Broken Link Removed].

    Hi Donald,

    I will show you how I manage this using a simple tool - Locate32 :
    - download it -
    - unzip, open the folder and run Updtdb32.exe - update done;
    - now run locate32.exe; under "Name & Location" tab select the movies directory via "Browse" button - you'll see a list of all the files in that directory (movies in this case);
    - go to File menu>Save result. A dialog box appears - select the location where to save the list (text file), give a name to the list and under "Details", let ticked only "Name". Now save it.

    I wouldn't even bother with that, to be honest. I would just open a Command prompt and use the following commands:cd C:UserVideosdir /b>MovieList.txtIt will create a bare text file in the UserVideos directory with one title on each line.

    A great tool for all kinds of file operations is FileMenu Tools (Make Use Of article here: //

    For your task: Select all the files you want to list: right click>select FileMenu Tools from the list>Select Copy Name>open an email, text editor, or Word processor document and paste the list in.

    What format is your list in? A text file, a database? If it is simply a directory on your drive with ripped movies in it, ha14's solution will work.
