Windows 7: Can't print full contents of a directory.

Can't print full contents of a directory.

I love to keep track of directory contents by printing them out. Various reasons.

By going to a command prompt, then to the directory of choice, I can send the results of the "dir" command to "prn" with the ">" (greater than) sign.

There are all sorts of switches to affect the way the printout looks. The ones I like are /b followed by /o:gn which gives you names only, directories first.

I run into a problem when there are hidden and system files in a folder. The switch for them is /a:hs.

No matter how I present the switches, all of the above, I cannot get the dir command to print everything. I get either all of the non-h&s, or I get just the h&s.

Any way I can solve this?

Thank you for the tip!
