When will Microsoft provide the feature to print a list of files from within Windows? Of course we can take multiple screenshots, or go out to DOS and use a switch, but come on.... WordPerfect was able to do this back in the early 90's. Or maybe even the lat 80's.
From the command prompt in the folder you want to make the list, run this

dir . /b > list.txt

if you want all the info... leave out /b /b is bare list.. not with sizes and dates

if you want a list of just about everyting on your compuer use attrib from the root directory

attrib *.* /s > list.txt
by the way.. people use the help forums.. not the blogs to ask questions .. i just ran across this by accident
