How to print the files from a search in Windows Explorer

Windows Explorer is ideal for finding files in folders and drives matching filters based on file properties and contents, such as file type and a word or phrase in the file. The search results are displayed as a list of files in a Window. You have a list of files, but what can you do with it? You might want to save the list to a file or a spreadsheet or print the list. How do you print a list of files from a search result?

Windows does not have a built in way to print the names of the files in a folder. A file list can be made by using the MS-DOS command window and redirecting the dir command to a file or making a batch file, which you save into the folder you want to list. A problem with listing folder files using these methods is that limited information is produced - file name, date created and file size.

Windows Explorer lists many file properties. To print these folder file names and properties, you need a utility that lists those properties also. Our product, DDFileCatcher, can make the same file lists saved to a disk file as the MS-DOS method, but with over 700 file properties to choose from.

To print the file names and a choice of file properties, you also need a way of formatting the output. DDFileCatcher saves the list of folder searches, files in a folder, several folders, or a complete drive in Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel to print the file list using all the formatting facilities of those applications.

You may want to print in different fonts and formats, and from different applications. DDFileCatcher puts the file lists in disk files, Microsoft Word, Excel, Google Spreadsheets, and other applications so you can print results of the the file search exactly how you want.
