Printing a directory tree in Win98.

I don't think you can do that in Explorer. Here's something you can do:

Open a command prompt.
Change to the directory from which you wish to start the listing: cd Use the 'dir' command with appropriate switches to list the files you want: dir /s /b
Optional: pipe the output to a file which you can format and print (or manipulate with other programming or text formatting tools):
dir /s /b > "c:\mylisting.doc"

The only way to do it in Windows Explorer is to press Print Screen, then paste into Paint or Word, and print from there.

A better way is using the dir command at the command prompt. Type dir /? for a list of options (what to print, sort options,etc).

Dir >lpt1 sends results to the printer, dir >myfile.txt sends results to a text file in the current directory.
