I have made a cd full of data that I want to get a printed list of so I know what is on the disk before I delete the files from my hard drive.
How can I get a printed of all the files on my cd? In the old dos it was easy you just changed directories and did a print screen. That does not work in command promt.

The easiest way I know is from a command prompt (Start, Run, cmd). For example: "dir d:\>c:\directory.txt" (without the quotes) will write all file names on your d drive to a file named directory.txt in the root of your c drive. If you need to include contents of subfolders use the /s switch with the dir command. For more options type "dir /?" (without the quotes) at the command prompt.
I finally got it all together, now if I could just remember where I put it.

That creates a text file that can be opened with any text editor, such as notepad.
