When asking for help with addons, or telling people about your UI, it can be useful to have a list of all your installed addons. Here’s the easiest way to get one.

  1. Open your AddOns folder in Windows Explorer.
  2. Hold the Shift key and right-click on a blank space in the window.
  3. Click “Open command window here” in the popup menu.
  4. Type the following command and press Enter:
    @dir /on /ad /b > addonlist.txt
    (Note: The command window doesn't support pasting with Ctrl+V, but you can paste by right-clicking and selecting “Paste” in the popup menu.)
  5. Close the command window.

Now, open the new “addonlist.bat” file in your AddOns folder and copy/paste its contents into a post, or just attach the file itself to your post.

Saving the script for later

If you don’t want to have to type the command again to get another list later, you can save it as a Windows batch script file that you can just double-click on again the future:

  1. Open Notepad and paste these two lines into a new text document:

    @dir /on /ad /b > addonlist.txt
    start addonlist.txt
  2. Save the document into your AddOns folder as “addonlist.bat”. When saving, change the “Save as type” dropdown to “All files” first — otherwise you might end up with a file named “addonlist.bat.txt” which won’t work!

If you don’t want the script to automatically open the addon list, delete the second line.
