    you could expland the ones you need to see, and hit the print screen button. Then go into paint, crop the picture then print it.

    I'm not sure if there's a way to print them - what I've done is the past is take a screenshot and then print the image.

    HOW TO: Add a "Print Directory" Feature for Folders in Windows XP


    SUMMARY
    This article describes how to add a "print directory" feature for folders in Windows XP. After you follow the steps in this article, you can right-click a folder, and then click Print Directory Listing to print a directory listing of the folder's contents.
    As usual, MS is VERY vague about implementing this. Ok, so I do all ther gunk it says to do, Then what?

    I suppose I have to reboot after I change the registry things?

    I see no new "print directory tree" in my shell

    Well Whaddya KNow!

    IT WORKS!

    Pretty Cool!

    If you follow the BATCH file, it deletes the "listing" file after it prints- If you want to save the directory listing as text, remove the delete line, or add a line in the batch file to move the listing file to a folder where you want to save the listings.

    There's also PrintFolder 1.2

    All the way at the bottom is the free version.

    This one will cost you $30 US but it is well worth it as it works better than any freeware program I've tried. It can save as a text file or send to printer. It is inserted in the right click context menu.

    The one from Karen inserts all kinds of useless characters in the file path. That's why I chose to pay for a good one instead.
