Yes, a file search.
I have files in many folders (and subfolders). There may well be duplicates, (which I want to delete) but SOME of their file details could be different.
I can get a list of ALL files by doing a search on *.* in the 'master' folder. If I could transfer that result to a spreadsheet, then I could divide the listed items up into such batches as I choose and re-arrange the columns at will to enable REsorting on various criteria, that may reveal where the duplication occurs. I know that Excel gives me total flexibility in dividing and sorting data, which Search lacks.
I KNOW there is a prgogram called Windows Search v4, which I disabled because I found it less user-friendly than the Search Companion. Does Windows Search v4 have result-capture facility ? I could not find it myself.

i've got a lot of methods for you to get file names and such out into an excel readable format...but i'm assuming you want all the file properties as well (like changed date and file size)

I want ALL the file details.
The entire table.
By the way, such a display does not merely result from a SEARCH.
The display of any folder contents has the same format. SURELY that is savable/capturable
