It has always bothered me that there is not a good way to print the folder structure in Windows XP. I was hoping this would be addressed in Windows 7. It seems to have been overlooked once again.  Does anyone know a good free way to print the folder structure in windows 7.

I'm currently running the Windows 7 - Version 6.1 build 7100

Any info is appreciated.

Screenshot would work, but if I had hundreds of folders with subfolders , screenshots really isnt convenient.
I was hoping an easier way to print a directory structure would be available.
On the left pane this can be accomplished in Win7.  Click Organize, then select Folder Options.  There under Navigation Pane you will see the 2 options:

Show all folders
Automatically expand to selected folder

This will give you the Tree View on the left pane of the explorer window.  while this may not be exactly what you are looking for it is a way to get tree view.  Can also try some free software for treeview.

Thank you.  
Not knowing if by "clean" you mean easier on the eye, but one other option to make the lines razor sharp - write the output to a DOC or RTF file, then open with Word.  It does look much nicer.
