    I've got folders with about 100 files in it and want to print a list of the
    file names. In the old DOS days, you could just do DIR > PRN and you'd have

    How do I do that in WIN XP Home or WIN 2000?

    You can do the same thing in W2K or XP. Open the Command Prompt and type the
    command dir > prn:

    Try DIR /? for a list of the new options in W2K and XP.

    I usually use something like dir /C /N /O:N > filename.txt then edit the
    resulting file with a word processor or Excel.
