    Ok what im trying to do is make a word doc. list of all the movies I have on my hard drive (which is a few hundred). Now rather than sitting there and typing the names of each movie I have, is there a way to copy all the text of the files and paste it to a word doc or? some other possible way??

    Any suggestions would be appreciated, thanks guys :)

    Just highlight all movies (cmd+A) and copy them (cmd+C) and then paste (cmd+V) them to the document

    Ok I feel dumb now cause a simple copy/paste worked like you said. I swear I tried it before and it would copy it like a link/alias or something instead of just the text. But simply a copy/paste worked perfectly.

    Anyways I appreciate the quick response....thanks:)
