File listing tool that lets you add files from different directories, edit file names just like in a text editor, include full paths, save or print file lists

editor's review




Filename Extractor is a file listing utility that you can use to obtain, save and print a list with all files from different directories. It's practical for various purposes, such as preparing a list with all installed programs before reinstalling Windows, or putting together photo, music or movie collections.

Portable file listing tool

The application doesn't require installation. You can drop the executable file anywhere on the hard drive or on a removable storage unit to run Filename Extractor on any PC effortlessly. It shouldn't modify your Windows registry settings.

It should be noted that, because the tool hasn't been updated for such a long time, you might experience some compatibility issues with newer Windows editions.

Add files from different folders

Filename Extractor adopts a user-friendly interface that permits you to get a file listing by either using the file browser to select items, or by dropping them into the main window while navigating disk directories (the window can stay on top of other frames).

This means that it's possible to put files from different locations into the same list. On the other hand, the app's not capable of automatically listing all files from a given directory.

Edit file names and save the file list

The number of total extracted file names is shown. What's more, you can edit files names directly in the main window just like editing text in a common word processor, as well as include the full file paths.

The resulted file list can be saved as a plain text document or printed. Before doing this, you can customize font settings.

Evaluation and conclusion

We haven't come across any stability issues in our tests, as the software program didn't hang, crash or prompt error messages. It had minimal impact on computer performance.

Although it's not as feature-rich as other apps in its category, Filename Extractor is certainly straightforward and gives you the possibility to seamlessly make file name modifications before saving file lists.
