Directory Print in Action

To get started, navigate to the folder or location with the contents that you would like to view using the drop-down directory menu at the top. Once you have your chosen directory displayed, you can choose to either print a list of the contents or save the list to a text file.

Notice that you can make adjustments for what is and is not displayed in a particular folder or location (i.e. System Files, Read Only).

Note: Directory Print will display the various file types, but not any sub-folders located in the folder or location being viewed.
