I am using windows 98SE and I want a list of all folders & subfolders in My Documents (776 folders).
print screen only does a screen shot so would take forever to get screenshots. Any suggestions? Thought maybe there was a way via system tools/system information but can't find anything?

I think you will find the old DOS commands work best. You can pipe your output to anywhere you like - including direct to your printer i.e

dir /s > prn.

I prefer to out output to a document and then edit before printing i.e

dir /s > dir.doc

then load dir.doc WORD, edit as required and print.

I don't know how to work in dos - please give me idiot proof instructions.
I found MS-DOS prompt in my programmes, typed in dir/s>dir.doc but nothing happened.

If you want it simple the link I provided is to a freeware (if you click the free trial button) utility, which will also act as an improved version of Windows Explorer. From the file menu you can choose to print entire or limited directory trees or the contents of individual folders.

If you don't want to install anything else, you probably only have what is suggested by Xania, which should work. You may have missed some spaces.

Printing from DOS will only work in certain versions - do you know what version you have. I think it's 6.22 it doesn't work in!
