I'm looking for a Windows tool that will allow you to "Copy as Text" from Windows Explorer. Anybody know of anything?
I have hundreds of mp3s containing the artist and song name in the file itself (e.g. Artist_-_Album_-_Track_-_Song.mp3). I want to be able to open the directory where these files are located with Windows Explorer, select them all, right-click, and select "Copy as Text", so that I can paste the information into Excel for manipulation. Any thoughts?
Currently, I am Exploring to the directory, using "Open Command Window Here
" to bring it up in a cmd window, running a "dir" command, right-clicking, select all-ing, pressing enter to copy, pasting it into notepad, getting rid of the unnecessary stuff (date stamp, filesize, etc.), and THEN pasting it into Excel. Boy, it sure would be nice to cut out the middlemen.
I am open to alternatives to Windows Explorer that provide this functionality, or ways to just get the information I need
(i.e. filename) from a command line. Ultimately though, I would prefer a "plug-in" for Windows Explorer. Thanks in advance.
