It is being surprisingly hard to achieve. I've tried so far:

  • Download file manager apps from Google Play. Unfortunately, "share" shares the files, not the file names. None of them had a option like copy file names

  • Download backup apps. Unfortunately, none of them backup the file names of a folder.

Any idea to copy to the clipboard or share the file names of all the files of a folder?

  • Use ls or find command on any terminal emulator app or adb shell. Nov 15, 2019 at 21:12
  • @IrfanLatif actually I'm searching for an easy way to do it as it's to tell a friend to share the name of the music files of 3 different folders.
