"Hi. I never understood why it was easier to print a directory in DOS than Windows. Thank you for the slick program 'Directory List & Print'. Cheers"
Tom Mathers, Canada

"Hi, I just needed to print a list of files and couldn't make Windows 7 perform. A quick web search got me to your utility and it worked GREAT. Thanks much, you've saved me from much frustration."
Jacques Vandenbroek, USA

"Hello, I have just downloaded and used your 'Directory List and Print' which is a wonderful time saver. The application was easy to download and to use. Anybody else who has thousands of files will find this program invaluable. I have 12,000 jpegs, the filenames of which I have re-captioned, and put in numerous directories. To have done this in DOS would have been a day's work, but 'Directory List and Print' has done it within half-an-hour, so thank you for this invaluable program. I will recommend it to others whom I know."
Paul Fletcher, USA

"With your program, I just view things in time order with file types and sizes, then hit 'print!'. Simple, and very smart. Thank you for making life easier!"
