Re: Printing directory from Windows Explorer
You can use a slight modification to this article:

How to add the Print Directory feature for folders in Windows XP

The problem with this article under Vista is that there's no way to create a
new action for file folders. To overcome this, we can use the "Send To"
feature. Create the "printdir.bat" file and place it in your "Windows"
folder per the article. Next, go to 'Start|Run", enter the line:

shell:sendto

in the Run window and click OK. This will open the "Send To" folder. Right
click in the folder, select "New|Shortcut", use the "Browse" button to
navigate to the printdir.bat file you created, click OK, click Next, give
the shortcut a name (I used "Print Directory"), and click "Finish". To test
this, open Windows Explorer, right click any folder and go to "Send To",
then "Print Directory". I find this works well and on all versions of
Windows hat have the "Send To" context menu. More on how to add items to
the "Send To" menu is here:

Re: Printing directory from Windows Explorer
Try wList for that, see:
SharkTime Software - wList - Create file list

It simple. Install wList and create a file list with right click context menu.
It has other interesting features like: file type filtering, export to playlist.
It is very easy to use.
