Add Print command in context menu of folders or directories.

This setting enables you to Print command in the context menu of the folders, provided the printer is connected through the port LPT1 and not to either USB or network printers.

Context menu is a very useful tool to make your working quite easy. You have many choices for working on a file or folder. You just have to right-click the folder and select “Print Contents” and the folder details will be printed. However, it should be noted that printer is connected through the port LPT1 and not to either USB or network printers.

For this, go to Start > Run menu, enter “regedit” and navigate to the registry path listed below. If any of the subkeys “\PrintHere” is not present, create it as explained below. Under this key, change the data of “Default” String value to “Print Contents”.

Then, create another sub key under “PrintHere” with the name “Command” and change the data of “Default” String value to “cmd.exe /c dir /a "%1" > lpt1”.

However, if you want to revert to the original context menu condition, delete the subkey “PrintHere”.

Refresh view of your system for the changes to take effect.
