Printing the Directory
Go to the Command Prompt and type
dir > prn
then press Enter. This is an easy way to print the contents of any folder as long as your printer will work using this method. The problem is that most laser printers require a form feed signal before they start printing. What happens in many cases is that the Directory is less than one page, and no form feed gets sent to the printer. When this happens, you won't get output unless you repeat the command.
Give this method a try--it may work fine for you.
