    I'm fairly new to Mac so please forgive this newbie question.

    Is there a way to export to text (to use in spreadsheet or similar) a list of all filenames within a particular folder in Finder?

    Thanks in advance.

    In Finder:
    select all files in the current folder (cmd+A), copy (cmd+C), open any text editor, and paste (cmd+V)
    If u use the TextEdit, go to Edit => Paste and Match Style.

    In Terminal:
    Navigate to the current folder: cd path/to/folder (you can drag n drop the folder inside the Terminal to copy the path)
    And type this command...
    ls > list.txt

    This will output the result of ls inside a new list.txt file... (it'll be created in the current directory)
