1 - Open Windows Explorer and search for what you want
2 - When the search results populate, select all (Ctrl + A)
3 - Hold the Shift key and Right Click on the search results
4 - Select "Copy as Path" (this option only shows up when you hold shift before the right click)
5 - Paste into a notepad window, Excel spreadsheet, etc...
The results will be formatted as:
