    DIR list to text list folders but not what is in them.

    Is there a way with DIR command line via CMD or power shell to list the contents of a directory but exclude the contents of the folders and generate a a bare list(location name only). Just list the files and folders?

    In a Command Prompt window type dir /? [note the space] to get a list of switches you can use. I frequently use dir /o/s>dir.txt to get an Organized list of files and subFolders redirected to a dir.txt file in that Folder. Leave off the >dir.txt is only wanting a list on the screen but could use /p to pause it a screenful at a time.

    Give this a shot, and obviously set your starting path to whichever directory you want.

    Get-ChildItem -Path C:\Windows\apppatch |Select-Object FullName
