    You could select all the pdf files and drag them to the printer, this should print them all.

    how "automatically" do you want this to be done?

    I have wrote a lot of pdf file and I have them stored in different folders
    There are about 40 pdf files in each of my folders and I would just like to print out
    each folder at a time.

    I am not sure just how to drag 40 files to a printer at one time.

    open 1 browser window with the folder where you have all the pdf files
    open the printers window aside
    select all the pdf files, and drag-drop them to the printer icon in the printers window.
