    How do I print what I see on the screen? Usually it's not a problem when I have an internet page up or a document. But I am doing an analysis of the files I have listed in different folders. So, I just want to print the list of files as shown on the screen.

    Lovesong, thanks but I'm not getting it. I tried pushing down the apple key, shift, 3 and nothing happened. I tried holding it down and looking on the finder tool bar and there was no option to print. The other move using 4 allows me to highlight all the files but still, there is no print option.

    Also, I don't want to have to highlight all the files in the folder. I just want to print the data pertaining to all the files in a folder on a piece of paper.

    Once you do what lovesong stated you *should* have a new .png file on your desktop. Open that up and print it.

    The OP can also use the "Grab" application in the Utilities folder. It does all screen captures and has more options.
