Hi all!
Granny again!

:trumpet: I would like to print out a list of all the files on my hard drive, and tearing my hair out for the answer. :flowers:

Tried 'help and Support' on my HP computer, tried Microsoft help sites, all with no result.

Surely it must be possible to do, or am I 'asking' the wrong question?

Am running Windows XP, all up-to-date version.

Just remember, I am not an expert!!

Thanks for any help you can give me. :thumbsup:

That would take a lot of pages. May I ask why your doing that?

I think Print Directory (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/321379) is what your looking for. Good Luck

Thanks for reply, Zesler.

Not sure really, but wants to see what temporary files are on computer, also wanted to check if I have duplicated files as I believe 'my documents' is also in another file with my name on, thereby, I would have every file in 'my doc' twice over!!

Have you taken a look here? The awesomest, most amazing Desktop Search App Ever, And I mean that
Following quote from the site homepage:

1.1 What is "Everything"?

"Everything" is an administrative tool that locates files and folders by filename instantly for Windows.
Unlike Windows search "Everything" initially displays every file and folder on your computer (hence the name "Everything").
You type in a search filter to limit what files and folders are displayed.

Bold in the quote is mine.

The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.
Andrew Brown (1938-1994)

A learning experience is one of those things that say, "You know that thing you just did? Don't do that." Douglas Adams (1952-2001)

"Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination circles the world." Albert Einstein (1879-1955)

:thumbsup: Thanks Animal

Have just downloaded it and will see how I get on.

Incidentally, If I find lots of Temporary Files, are they just that, temporary and is it ok to delete them all?

Thanks to you and all bleepers. Cyberhug coming your way!!
