(AS A LAST RESORT, IF YOU CAN'T FIND A TOOL LIKE YOU WANT)

(on second thought, MAYBE DO THIS FIRST, that way you don't have to wait
long)

You won't get thumbnails using the technique this message but you will
get a list and you will have right now. You can then feed the list into
PSP's browse file to get the thumbnails quickly.

From a command prompt (remember those, the old DOS window) you can
execute a command like:

>>>> "dir c:\*.X /B /S > X.list"

where X is the extension you are looking for. You will then need to
append the lists to together to get a complete list of all the
extensions.

The /B switch strips off unwanted dir command info, the /S switch
traverses down the subdir tree.


Here is a batch file that you can cut and paste to perform the job:

@echo off
>dir c:\*.bmp > c:\bmp.lst
>dir c:\*.jpg > c:\jpg.lst
>dir c:\*.gif > c:\gif.lst
>dir c:\*.ico > c:\ico.lst
>dir c:\*.wmf > c:\wmf.lst
copy c:\bmp.lst + c:\jpg.lst + c:\gif.lst + c:\ico.lst + c:\wmf.lst
Combined.lst


You could also use Word or other tool that has macro capabilities to
perform such a task.
