    Like the title says...Can you print a list of all the files in a certain location? I would like to print a list of all the songs I have in "my music" folder. Is there any way to do it?

    Open a command prompt, change to your "My Music" directory and type in:
    dir /b > music.txt

    You now have a text file with all of the songs in that directory. If you want to recurse subdirectories, try adding the /s switch as well.

    I had a CAD guy ask the same thing several years ago and he was not happy with the DOS solution. I did a search of the web and found a boat load of little utilities that would do what he wanted ... both freeware and shareware. Try to Google "print folder files" it will list quite a few.
