Windows 7: Take screenshot of the contents of an entire folder

Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit
Take screenshot of the contents of an entire folder

I'm trying to take a screenshot of my music folder but it is too big to just alt+print screen. Is there a way to take a screenshot of the entire folders contents built into windows or a 3rd party program that can do it.

Are you saying that you want a directory listing, and that the listing is too long for a screenshot?

If so, just open a Command Prompt (Look in Accessories).

Navigate to your directory via cd (change directory) commands.

Once there, simply type:-

dir > filename.txt
(note the spaces each side of > ) and "Enter"

That will create a new text file called filename.txt which will be a directory listing of your files, with details, thus:-

Directory of C:\Users\horatio

13/11/2010 22:39 <DIR> .
13/11/2010 22:39 <DIR> ..

folder screenshot
Further research indicates that my pesky screenshot is in a folder named "screenshots" and I would delete it if someone could tell me where to find this folder.
