Remember what a challenge it was to generate a list of filenames of all the files in a folder on your PC? In XP, you had to go to the command prompt and type in something like DIR /B /ON *.* > filelist.txt. (That command sorts them in order). In Vista, it's so much easier. Now, all you have to do is select the files, right-click, and choose "Copy as Path." Paste the list anywhere. Of course, this does copy the entire path to the file, but Find-and-Replace can quickly take care of that. It's the little things like this that really make my day. (Thanks to AppScout for reminding me of this!)
