I need to print a list of files contained in a folder

I need to print out the list of files contained within a folder.

How can I do this without resorting to either a screenshot printout or typing the whole thing out by hand?

Thanks.

There's no easy way to do that with Windows' built-in tools.  Take a look at Karen's Directory Printer.

Here are four ways:
 
1. Go to a command prompt and issue the command
 
dir [drive:folder] > c:\tempfilename (you can use any name and put it
in any folder you want)
 
Then open notepad, open tempfilename, and print it from there.
 
2. Write (for example in Notepad) a 1-line text file:
DIR %1 /O >LPT1:
 
Save it as "printdir.bat" in the "Send To" folder.
 
Then, to print list of files in any folder, right-click that folder
and select Send to | printdir.bat
 
To include subfolders, change the command to DIR %1 /O/S >LPT1:
 
3. Go to
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;Q321379 and
follow the instructions there.
 
4. Download and use any of the several freeware/shareware utilities
that can do this, such as the popular
