Print directory listing

By vhart ·
Can someone advise on how to print the contents of a directory from Windows (XP) Explorer? Or is there a way to copy it into a Word or Excel document?
Thx

Print directory listing

Using the print screen key will save a graphic image of what's on the screen to the desktop.

You can then paste the image into any program that accepts graphics.

Alternately, there are a number of 'free-ware' utilities that allow for printing folder contents.

Search the Disk Catalog section at www.nonags.com

There are several utilities posted there that will create a printable list of the files in a folder.

Another alternate, is Z-Tree from http://www.ztree.com/
This is the latest iteration of the DOS X-Tree program that many people used years ago.

Ok, there is another method if you are after just the directory listing...

goto Start -> Run

Type CMD (then press enter)

Up will come the command prompt

Now, navigate to the directory bu using CD\*Add directory(s) here*

Now, once there, type DIR > PRN (or even DIR > dir.txt) That will either capture the directory listing and pipe it to the PRN (Printer). If it doesnt work, use the latter command, for it will make a text file, which can be the opened with notepad and printed thatway.

Hope this helps
