A free simple way of producing easily updatable Course list.

Put this line in a Batch file called List.bat, in your Course folder.

dir /O *.crz>"c:\Documents and Settings\((You Name))\desktop\Courses.doc"

Note: ((You Name)) is different for everyone PC

Now create a shortcut to List.bat on your Desktop.

When you run List.bat you get an updated Courses.doc appears on your desktop.

and if your courses are in individual directories will that work?

If your folders are below the folder you add this batch file to the /S will show all .crz files as a list

dir /O /S *.crz>"c:\Documents and Settings\((You Name))\desktop\Courses.doc"

Hope that helps.

You could automate to run at startup in Windows 10 by:

• Select the Start button, then select Settings > Apps > Startup. Make sure any app you want to run at startup is turned On.

Or

• If you don’t see the Startup option in Settings, right-click the Start button, select Task Manager, then select the Startup tab. (If you don’t see the Startup tab, select More details.) Select the app you want to change, then select Enable to run it at startup or Disable so it doesn’t run. Watch the video to see how to do it.
