    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
