    I am still having problems with the following Q321379 Article by Microsoft.
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/321379
    It works sometimes, but most of the time I end up with an empty Directory
    Listing, even though the Folder contains lots of folders and files.

    I am unsure about Step 5 of the Registry instructions:

    1.Start Registry Editor.
    2.Locate the following registry key:
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell
    3.On the Edit menu, click New, and then click Key. Type Print Directory
    Listing, and then press ENTER.
    4.Select Print Directory Listing, click New on the Edit menu, and then click
    Key.
    5.Enter a command for the name of the new subkey, and then press ENTER.
    6.Double-click the default entry that is listed in the "command" subkey.
    7.In the Value data box, type Printdir.bat %1.
    8.Click OK, and then exit Registry Editor.

    I just entered "Command" for Step 5 -- is that OK -- could that be causing
    my problem. For some reason, I don't think so because the Print operations
    works, some of the time -- but woud still like to know what is expected in
    Step 5.

    Anyway, the "Print Dir" shows up when I right-click a folder, but the
    results are not consistent when click on it -- sometimes it prints the
    Directory Listing, but most of the time it just prints an empty
    Directory/Folder.

    Is there some fix for this. I really want the capacility to print out the
    Directory Listing of the contents of a folder. I wish MS would provide this
    feature.

    You should try *wList* for that, see:
    'SharkTime Software - wList - Create file list
    [image: http://www.sharktime.com/wlist/img/wList_Banner_120x90.gif]
    ' (http://www.sharktime.com/us_wList.html)
    I'ts easy, install wList and create a file list with 'right click
    context menu' (http://www.sharktime.com/wlist/help/us0015.html).
    It has other interesting features like: file type filtering, export to
    playlist or HTML.
