How can I obtain all displayed info on files from Windows Explorer?
I would like to find a way to obtain the length (playing time) of mp3 files and have them stored in a text file.
In other words, when using Windows Explorer to show mp3 files in detail view, I can turn on the LENGTH column (as well as many others) so that the playing time displays along with the file name, size, etc.
I want the length values along with the filenames (and other columns) 'read' from the WE window and saved in a text file.
It is easy to obtain the basic info by doing a DIR in DOS mode, etc. but I can't find a way to access all the other column info.
Is there a built in way to export the WE data? I can't even find a third party program to do this.
I believe NirSoft's SysExporter used to be able to do this but his site now states "Starting from Windows 7, Microsoft changed the control that is used for displaying files and folder in Explorer window, and thus SysExporter cannot grab the data from Explorer windows on Windows 7."
Any ideas appreciated! Thanks
You are correct, I DO have PowerShell!
Thanks for that heads up - I never noticed. Probably because I know nothing about it whereas I've written tiny VBS scripts before. If I can figure out how to get PowerShell code to run, at least I can use prewritten routines I find like the one above.
