My pages library contains folders and items inside folders.
I could open a folder and export items by clicking on 'Export to Excel' in the ribbon menu.

I don't want to open each folder and click 'Export to Excel' and merge those files into one excel.

I want to simplify the task to export all folders items into excel using powershell script or out of the box feature.


You can use csom power shell to export all the files from the library. make sure you have Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.Runtime.dll and Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.dll

You create a power shell file by copying the below code and make sure the client dlls and this .ps1 file are at one place.

if you want to run from your desktop. make sure you install SharePoint Server 2013 Client Components SDK
