How to print a file window?

By zembron ·
XP Explorer lets me view files as icons/thumbnails/tiles/details etc. Now how do you print the content of the file window??

I have sorted a file view as thumbnails, and I need a hardcopy of this list.

have you tried alt print screen and paste it into a paint image?
if you just need a list there is a program called directory printer

on dos, go to the directory you would like to print... then type.. "dir>lpt1" w/o the quotes of course... i think it should print off the default printer...

? go to the directory
? type "dir>1.txt"

1.txt on that directory should contain the file list of that directory.. hope that helps.

hit print screen (which copies the screen to the clipboard), then open MSWord and paste into a new document.
works every time for me
