Here are four ways:

1. Go to a command prompt and issue the command

dir [drive:folder] > c:\tempfilename (you can use any name and put it
in any folder you want)

Then open notepad, open tempfilename, and print it from there.

2. Write (for example in Notepad) a 1-line text file:
DIR %1 /O >LPT1:

Save it as "printdir.bat" in the "Send To" folder.

Then, to print list of files in any folder, right-click that folder
and select Send to | printdir.bat

To include subfolders, change the comand to DIR %1 /O/S >LPT1:

3. Go to
http://support.microsoft.com/default...;EN-US;Q321379 and
follow the instructions there.

4. Download and use any of the several freeware/shareware utilities
that can do this, such as the popular

From the command prompt (Start > Run > Cmd.exe), simply change to
the desired directory and type "dir > filelist.txt" or "dir > lpt1,"
just as you used to do in DOS. Any of the switches for the DIR command
(type "dir /?") will work with this command, if you wish to modify the
output. You can then subsequently edit the resulting text file using
NotePad, WordPad, Word, etc.

http://www.dirfile.com/dirprinting.htm
http://majusoft.de/setups/DirPrintingMsi.zip 2.2 mb

tested it right now (printing to pdf creator).
can print email or save the directory content, with subfolders too.

after installing, though, i couldnt find a shortcut anywhere, desktop or
start menu, so had to browse to the C:\Program Files\MajuSoft\DirPrinting
folder.

karen's programs suggested by ken blake are usually very well made.
