How To Print Files List In Windows 10?
Printing All Files In A Folder
To print all of the files in a folder, open Windows Explorer (File Explorer in Windows 10) and navigate to that folder. Press CTRL-a to select all files and the selection, and choose Print from the context menu. Of course, you can also print fewer files by manually selecting the ones you need instead of pressing CTRL-a.
Please note that in order for this to work the selected items should be of printable types - documents images etc. If your list includes non-printable files like executables (exe), music (mp3 etc.), archives (zip, rar etc.) the Print menu item will not be listed as those items can not be printed.
The print option will not appear also if your files are of different types. You can select only .docx files or .jpg files, but you can not mix different types in a single print job. You can easily sort the files by type and print them in batches by file type.
Printing List Of All Files In A Folder
Printing files list unfortunately is not available in Windows File Explorer. You can capture and print a screenshot, but that will not work if you want to print all the files in the sub-folders.
