    Question Export a list of files from Windows Explorer (with the detail) to an Excel spreadsheet

    Hello

    We have very large files which need to be deduped and organised. We want to export the list of files from Windows Explorer to an Excel spreadsheet in order to sort them. I have found a way of exporting the basic detail using "Copy as path" but it does not export the date modified and size detail which I require.

    I have attached a screen shot of what we are trying to export. Ideally just the four columns but the path data would be ok if it was included as well.

    I would be really grateful if anyone can help.

    Thank you.

    Copy and paste the folder path into a browser window address bar, then CTRL+A, CTRL+C to copy everything to the clipboard - paste values into Excel.
