There are several shareware programs that will handle printing the directory. If you don't mind DOS you can use the following trick: Go to the DOS prompt (if you do not know what this is, stop here) Change to desired drive (i.e. C:/) Change to desired directory (sorry, Folder) Type the following DIR /S /B /ON > PRN This will send the results directly to your printer. If you would like to SAVE this file substitute filename.txt for PRN above.<< Ain't DOS great in its simplicity? However, I think that that command would give you a list of all the files in the directory and subdirectories. (Make sure you have plenty of paper in your printer if your computer is set up with only a C: drive) If Peeran wants only the directory tree, the command probably should be (MS-DOS 6.22): DIR /S /AD /ON > [PRN|LPN1|LPN2] where LPN# is the parallel port the printer is connected to (PRN=LPN1). (This will also give you the subdirectory files, . [current] and .. [parent]) For DOS prior to 6.22, DIR *. /S will give you a listing of all the directories, subdirectories *and* all files that don't have extensions. I use a program, XTREE, that will give you a directory tree for the drive that you are on or specify, the number of files in each directory/subdirectory, and the amount of space occupied by those files. If you want more, it will do a DOS graphic display of the directories/subdirectories, and will also give you a complete list of all the files in each directory/subdirectory. Since Windoze is merely a GUI that needs the DOS operating system to work (MS-DOS 7 for W98), the DIR command should also work from the DOS prompt in a DOS window. A.
