    yeah that way sucks... so does doing it from a command prompt, I made a txt file and brought it into excel which works too... I just wish there was a way to open a window and print a damn list of files without all that

    To create and print an image of a listing of files or folders using Microsoft Paint, follow these steps:
    Go In My Computer or Windows Explorer, open the folder you want to print, and then press ALT+PRINT SCREEN to copy an image of the active window to the Clipboard.
    1. Click Start, point to Programs, point to Accessories, and then click Paint.
    2. On the Edit menu, click Paste, and then click Yes to display the image.
    3. On the File menu, click Print.

    Using a screen-shot is completely useless if you have too many files and directories such that they don't fit on one screen
    That is why you should use a program such as: Directory Report

    Print to a file then print

    From a run prompt type 'cmd' without the quotes
    Depending on the where the folder list is the you want to print, you will need to change directory to that directory. ex cd c:\programs\folders

    Then type the following command.
    dir > folders.txt
    This will place the text file in the same folder that you are running it from.
    this will print the directory to a text file that you can print or edit.

    Qucik steps:
    open command prompt
    cd to top folder
    dir > c:\folders.txt
    Print

    The DOS dir command can only report on the file's modified date and size.
    But if you want more info such as MP3 tags, EXE version info, owner, CRC32 then you will need to use a program such as Directory Report
