    How to copy a list of files from Windows Explorer
    1. Open Windows Explorer and locate the folder for which you need a file list.
    2. Hold the “Shift” key, right-click the folder and select “Open Command Window Here.” This only works with folders, not libraries.
    3. Type “dir /b > dirlist.txt” without quotes and press “Enter.” This creates a list containing file names only.
        To include file sizes and dates, type “dir > dirlist.txt” instead.
        To also include files in sub-directories, type “dir /b /s > dirlist.txt” to create a list of files with the full directory structure name, such as “C:foldersubdirectoryfile.txt.”
    When you have done this you will find a text file in the folder dirlist.txt however you can name it whatever you wish.

    Quick way how to Get PDF files or any files from your Laptop/Desktop Computer to your Tablet

    Resizing images
    You can find a very simple but useful Image Resizer add-on for Windows here http://www.bricelam.net/ImageResizer/
    Once installed you only have right click on an image and select “Resize pictures”

    You then get the following menu

    Next month we hope to have a “play” with Microsoft Flight Simulator.
