It's very easy to create a directory listing, but by default it is
fatally misleading: all recognized file extensions are suppressed. So
the PDF file will be created with a .pdf extension, but the directory
listing will not show it.
This is a boneheaded decision made years and years ago at Microsoft, and
they seem to think they're stuck with it. But users aren't: one of
the "Folder Options" in Explorer is called "Hide extensions for known
file types", and this should always be unchecked.
