How do I print the actual files or folder list as I see
on the screen???? I want to print them out so I can use
them as a quick label on my backup CDs.

To print the active window as it's displayed, press Alt+PrtScn. This
copies the active window to the clipboard as a bitmap. You can then
paste the bitmap into a graphics editor such as paint, or a word
processor that has graphic capabilities (such as Word) and print the
screen from that application.

Alternatively, since you probably only want a listing of the file
names, you can use the command line DIR command and redirect its
output to a text file and then print that from Notepad, or use a
dedicated 3'rd party utility such as ExpPrint
http://www.jddesign.co.uk/.

ExpPrint is an Explorer extension that gives you a "Print Directory
Listing" context menu option when you select any combination of file
folder, disk drive, or files - including the Search results list. It
has quite a comprehensive sorting and layout capability, fully
supports Unicode (so it can print names that contain characters not
supported in the default code pages), and is only a small download.

ExpPrint is shareware, the only restriction on the non-registered
usage is that the Save settings capability is disabled. Other than
that it's fully functional.

You can also print out complete directories using
Microsoft Outlook. Go to My Computer in Outlook Shortcuts
and navigate to the folder(s) listings you want. Then you
can use File Print to print the entire listing of files or
folders in one step rather than cutting and pasting one
screen at a time.
