'[OT]: How to print Windows directory info'

Does anyone know how to make a printout of directory info from within
Windows?

With WinXP, you can add parameters to Windows Explorer such as program
version, revision number and so on. Is there a way to make these parameters
show up in a Dos box "dir" command?

Is there any easy way to print this out, preferably from within windows?
Thanks!
Tom M.

I don't know an easy way.  The monkey wrenching way I use is to open the
folder I want to print in Windows,  Open a DOS prompt, type C: which
automagically recognizes the current folder for some reason (avoiding the
tedious typing to translated long folder names in DOS) then type DIR >>
MYLIST.TXT.  Then I edit mylist.txt to have the info I want.   Pretty
tedious, if you ask me, for something that I need to do every week.

I didn't think XP even had a dos window to do this out of ?

I've seen a file manager that would do it more or less, can't recall which
one but I tried after downloading from tucows. It had a built in function
to print the directory.

You can click on the Start button, then click on Run and type in
command.com to get a DOS window open in XP, NT, 2000, 95,
98, and ME.
Or you will at least get a pseudo DOS window.

How about Alt-PrintScreen to capture the screen then print from
a graphics prog. You can set the Folder Options to show file info
and edit the screen if you need to in the graphics prog

   Tom, the following will give you a list of files with their full
path but no other info such as size and date:

   1. Use Explorer to select a directory
   2. Select All
   3. Right-Click the highlighted list
   4. Select "Send To Clipboard as Name"
   5. Paste it into your text editor or word processor

   - Tom

or if you use the DOS box  DIR > filename.txt
command you can use all kinds of options for DIR to specify exactly what you
want to see.


DIR [drive:][path][filename] [/P] [/W] [/A[[:]attributes]]
[/O[[:]sortorder]] [/S] [/B] [/L] [/V] [/4]

  [drive:][path][filename]
              Specifies drive, directory, and/or files to list.
              (Could be enhanced file specification or multiple filespecs.)
  /P          Pauses after each screenful of information.
  /W          Uses wide list format.
  /A          Displays files with specified attributes.
  attributes   D  Directories                R  Read-only files
               H  Hidden files               A  Files ready for archiving
               S  System files               -  Prefix meaning not
  /O          List by files in sorted order.
  sortorder    N  By name (alphabetic)       S  By size (smallest first)
               E  By extension (alphabetic)  D  By date & time (earliest
first)
               G  Group directories first    -  Prefix to reverse order
               A  By Last Access Date (earliest first)
  /S          Displays files in specified directory and all subdirectories.
  /B          Uses bare format (no heading information or summary).
  /L          Uses lowercase.
  /V          Verbose mode.
  /4          Displays year with 4 digits (ignored if /V also given).

Switches may be preset in the DIRCMD environment variable.  Override
preset switches by prefixing any switch with - (hyphen)--for example, /-W.

Except the cited option doesn't exist in Win 95/98. Is it an XP
enhancement or did you happen to load an explorer 'enhancer'
and forgot about it?

Under windows NT, 2k, and XP run
CMD
for the command prompt.

You can run command.com, but IIRC it is compatible with the older
systems and doesn't have the the nifty new features.
