Another way to print the contents of a folder is to send them to a Word document. This is a remarkably simple yet effective method that gives great results.
To begin, go to Start > Run and enter cmd to open the Command Prompt. In Windows Vista or later, use Start > enter cmd in the Search box.
Next, browse to the folder you wish to see the contents of. For instance if you want to view the contents of the Windows folder on the C: drive, you would enter:
You can use the dir command to list other folders and switch to those using the cd command.
When you’re happy with the folder listing that appears on screen when you type dir and you’re ready to output to a Word document, enter:
dir > [filename].doc
This will create a Word document within the folder that you have listed the contents of – change [filename] to your own, meaningful file name. You can also, if preferred, output the contents list to a text file, by entering:
dir > [filename].txt
Now available in .TXT or .DOC format, the folder contents are ready to be printed!
