start -> run -> type "cmd"

in dos window, type "c:" then press enter

in C:\> type "cd [chosen directory]" (don't put brackets when you're actually typing it in. Just put those there for clarification.)

once inside desired directory, type "dir -s > c:\listing.txt" for a recursive listing. Type "dir /?" for a listing of all the options and flags available.
