Windows 7: Is there a program for viewing all folder,subfolder,and files at once

Is there a program for viewing all folder,subfolder,and files at once


I have *a lot* of folders, sub folder, and files, on my work pc. A lot of the files have similar names, and I have lost control over where I have my files. I use a lot of time to open and close each folder and sub folder to find my files.

I need a program that will, without me clicking each folder and sub folder, open/show *ALL* folders, sub folders, and files within the folders and sub folders, at once, so that I can get a complete overview over where my files are located.

Is there such a program?

DirectoryOpus has something known as Flat View:
a mode you can turn on in a Lister that enables you to view all the contents of a folder's sub-folders at once. In effect it collapses, or flattens, the display of a nested hierarchy of folders and files into a single folder.
But, it is not free; instead, you have to purchase it online.

try this : open a command prompt and navigate to the desired folder, then type the underlined :

C:\>tree /f /a

if lots of data you may output results to a file thus:

C:\>tree /f /a > filename.txt
