I'm trying to find a way to print the contents of a folder in windows. For instance, I have a folder with songs that I would like to print out and make notes on so I can re sort it. Does anyone have any ideas??? Thanks

What I do is view the files as a list, size the window, then press ALT+PrintScreen to capture the image then paste it in MSPowerpoint (objects behave better in powerpoint than in MSWord), then print. Tada!

You can do this easily...
I am assuming that you want to print the contents to a file that you can refer later.For this you need to use DOS (cmd)

Open DOS by Start|Run|cmd.exe [Enter]
Then navigate to the folder you want say d:\files
- d:
- cd files
Now you are in the "files" directory, for printing the contents do as follows :
- dir>contents.txt
where content.txt is the text file that will be created..

DOS is cool isn't it?:)

Using the dos prompt
dir "c:\Documents and Settings\<user name>\My Sites\sample\images\" > "c:\Documents and Settings\<user name>\My Sites\sample\output.txt"
dir displays contence of the folder then pipe it in to an out put file output.txt

Use this product APrintDirect. It will export all of the files, their names, location, file type ect... to a pdf which can be moved to excel.

Nobody seems to get it -- do they?
What you want to do is print out each individual
file (song) in the folder without having to do open file ,print, right?
About the way I'm getting ready to do the same thing; with a macro. Not to tidy but it will help.

@Ray DT
What you really want isn't dir>contents.txt

Really you need to do this

tree /f /a > contents.txt

That will give you every folder with every file in that folder shown in ASCII format.
