    Shift right click in the parent folder/open command window/power shell here/paste dir > listmyfolder.txt and Enter

    If you want the subdirectories too then do this:

    dir /ad /s /b > listmyfolder.txt

    /ad means show only directories
    /s means recurse through subdirectories
    /b means show basic details.
