Two Questions re Organizer Albums: Export and List of files

Pretty confused here. I wanted to get a list of the files in one of my Organizer photo albums, so I poked around the Organizer menus, then did a few Web searches to look for an answer as to how I could do this. I didn't find anything that indicated this was possible, but I did see a reference to exporting files in an album, and I figured that I could export them to some temporary folder, then get a list of the files in the folder using an old DOS command. So I opened the album, then selected File->Export as New File(s). I expected to be prompted for a file location, but I was not. So I (foolishly) ran the command anyway. Now I have no idea where those files are. So my questions are twofold: is there a simpler way to get a list of the files in the album, and where are those exported files?

Duh . . . I must be blind: I looked again and the the destination folder IS specified in the Export dialog box. So I found the files and will get the list using the DOS command (unless someone knows another way to do this without exporting the files). Sorry to complicate things with the  "where did the files go?" question.
