Windows 8: How can I output a list by folder of all my MP3 music files which I can import into Excel so I can then select and consolidate in one folder?

I have seen some code which would appear to do this without human intervention but I am worried about apps which might have MP3 files which would then not be able to find them.

It would be easy to locate all MP3s on your system (using Windows search or dir for example), and even automate the consolidation using a batch file, but how would the code know which audio files belong to a program and shouldn't be moved? – Karan Mar 31 '13 at 21:47

Try: dir *.mp3 /s >list at the command prompt in root and open list with Excel, then create a batch file to move as appropriate.
