Via the Command Line
Although this doesn’t require you to download any other additional software, this method is pretty simple and is great if you don’t need to mess around with any settings and specifications and just want to output the contents of a folder. This method involves outputting the contents to a text file which can then be printed.
Begin by starting the command prompt. This can be done in several ways in Windows 7 – for instance, you might press WINDOWS+R and type cmd then click OK, or you might go to Start, type cmd and tap Enter.
From the command prompt, use the cd function to find the directory path to the folder whose contents you want to print.
For instance, I have a folder called Music on my D drive. To print the contents of this, I would navigate to the folder using:
As I am switching from the default c:\ drive to d:\, in the next line I will need to enter:
Next, view the directory using the dir command. This will give you an idea of the information that will be displayed in the file that you will create. The file is then created using the command
dir > print.txt
This creates a file called print.txt within the selected folder. You can then open this text document and select File > Print.
